Two immigrants in Warsaw - a father and a son and their daily struggle

A short documentary which shows the everyday struggles of two immigrants from Chechenya - Vakha and his son Magomed. The harsh reality of the newly arrived immigrant is obvious, but clearer still is the bond of true affection and care between father and son that deepens despite the circumstances. An intimate and endearing snapshot of two lives and the love between a father and a son.
