ESCAPE TO PARADISE

Warmth and bitterness, fear and hope are the feelings evoked in this authentic film about a Kurdish family emigrating to Switzerland. In an asylum seekers’ shelter they prepare the interview on which their residency permit depends. The story has been developed with people from eight different countries, amongst them the leading characters, Düzgün Ayhan and Fidan Firat.
