Nothing To Declare
SHORT FILM, 20 MINUTES, 2018
Two men and a woman are forced to flee their country and end up together in the cargo hold of a truck heading for Europe.
During their bizarre journey they share their stories, hopes and dreams. Moments of friendship, warmth and intimacy come together with the horrible reality. In this twilight zone between a new and an old existence, the question is whether they will reach their final destination.
The story of Nothing to Declare is inspired by the life stories of Khales Warrak, Rama Taher and Yazan Al-Hakim, who also play the leading roles in the film.
