Welcome to Paradise by Poutte, Manuel

From a refugee camp to a small american town, the film depicts the destiny of a somali couple, candidate to asylum. Portrait of their waiting, exile and integration, the film questions the sacrifices consented for a «better life», as well as the values of our occidental world in regard of work, so as the US Patriot act.
