Farhad, Wahid, Waafa, Diezo and Abdallah are each asylum seekers whom Marine Place hosted for several weeks. She shared with them her roof and her family life. They continued their journey but their faces, their smiles, and their stories are now a part of her life, her story. They completely overturned her customary way of doing things as well as her outlook on the world.
She is not the only person to have opened her doors to refugees. Everywhere in France, families, communities, associations, cities and towns are choosing to keep their eyes open and to get involved, as if in resistance to and against the tide of the of the prevailing attitudes that incite fear and encourage isolationism and withdrawal.
In a sort of road-movie along the routes of France and to the rhythm of her own questioning, Marine Place goes out to meet these men and women who transform their indignation into a quest for solutions.
