They’re alive. Because they fled. Teenagers Juma and Hishame attempt an extremely dangerous journey to Europe, hiding in the chassis of a truck. Ahmed, Nura, Achmad and Asha have managed to get over the fences. After arriving in Austria, they try to reorder their lives. Jawid and Alem have already spent a year and a half in Vienna, hoping their asylum applications will be approved. The trauma of loss, the longing for their families, the prospect of a completely uncertain future, the dealings with a new and complex bureaucracy all characterise their new beginnings. All of which they absorb with a great deal of humor as they live life to the utmost; they’re loud, in-your-face and in love.
