An Iraqi refugee faces the Kafkaesque Euro-bureaucratic labyrinth. 

This experimental documentary presents a formally innovative approach to depicting challenges faced by migrants relegated to the shadow economy. Despite being a skilled specialist in his field, with companies eager to employ him, an Iraqi refugee navigating the bewildering complexities of EU asylum laws finds himself trapped by contradictory legal regulations that block any path to legalizing his stay.
