The documentary accompanies the EU resettlement programme aimed at granting asylum to and resettling refugees from Iraq. The programme envisages planned integration. But getting accustomed to a completely new culture and society is not easy. The director accompanies the refugees from the time of their arrival in Germany up to the point of settlement in their new places of residence. The film gives a deep and personal insight into the everyday lives of people traumatized by war. Six year-old Schams masters her first steps at school. Waleed learns German after meeting a young woman... But the war in their homeland goes on, and while they are fortunately living in Germany, the killing of their family members and friends still continues in Iraq.

Shown at the European Film Market of Berlinale 2012.
