Tania and  her 14-year-old son Ivan have been illegal Russian immigrants in Belgium for eight years now. Constantly on her guard, Tania fears police identity checks. One day she is arrested. Mother and son are separated. Tania is placed in a detention center. She stops at nothing to find Ivan but won’t escape the threat of expulsion.

Director

Olivier Masset-Depasse

Right from his first shorts, Chambre froide (2000) and Dans l’ombre (2004), Olivier Masset-Depasse has filmed headstrong female characters who will stop of nothing to get what they want. With these two films, the director won some 60 prizes in international festivals. Cages (2006), his first feature, which dramatizes a destructive love affair, was seen at the Rome and Toronto festivals and enjoyed a commercial success in Belgium.
