EU embassies in other countries often become places of hope. Before attempting other means, such as crossing the green border, people will try taking the legal route by applying for a visa at a consular section. This is easier said than done. Embassies are often reminiscent of a fortress in a state of siege. They are the first test of strength for applicants, as well as a test of their human dignity, and are just plain intimidating. In this film the director shows us a night filled with hope outside the German Embassy in Belgrade. People queue up for visas, queue up for what they hope will be a better life.
