Over 700,000 Rohingya are housed in the world’s largest refugee camp, Kutupalong, Bangladesh. Ambient images tell of their monotonous daily lives and the ghosts of the past. "What happened is not only about us. It is about human beings." Kutapulong in Bangladesh, the world's largest refugee camp, a place seemingly caught in time. Nearly 700,000 Rohingya Muslims live here in cramped emergency shelters, unwanted and without prospect.... Their days are long, light and darkness, strength and despair lie close together. The film shows the rough, monotonous everyday life between poems and nightmares, food distribution and soccer games. Images of great beauty and gentle poetry make past horrors and the simple desire for freedom all the more vivid. A powerful, deeply human film, as poetic as a painting.
