SYNOPSIS

Center Jægerspris is an Asylum Centre for children who have fled to Denmark without their parents. The Centre houses 40 kids between 10-18 years of which the majority has fled from Afghanistan, Iran and Africa.

The asylum process takes years to reach a verdict leaving the kids in a Limbo. Daily tensions and frustrations are projected on to the staff and several kids develop mental problems from the uncertainty and waiting.

The film follows an intense couple of days at the Centre where the staff are preparing to give three boys a final rejection on asylum.

The camera travels in and out of situations at the Centre creating an impressionistic view on the endless waiting and how it affects the boys and the staff.
