An intimate and inside perspective on the Calais 'jungle', evoked through a polyphony of men, tales and atmospheres. A sensory journey through the social life and survival strategies of migrants. A film of wind and despair, of fire and solidarity, of hope and hell. Sharing the daily life of migrants, on numerous visits during the entire duration of the jungle, and often using a collaborative methodology (images and narrations partly produced by the migrants), director Laurent Van Lancker presents a film that is both poetical and political, evoking an untold and internal perception on the faculty of adaptation and the social life of migrants.
