In pursuit of a better life
This debut film by two journalists is about three women who come to Sweden to beg money in order to give their families in Romania a more tolerable life. We get to know the people behind in what the documentary filmmakers call “the beggers fasade” and the stereotypes applied to people in their situation. We follow the women on the streets of Stockholm, in their tent camp and their home in Romania where they reunite with their family. We get to share their longing for the loved ones – and their hopes.
