WELCOME TO SPAIN

SPAIN, 80’

A group of refugees of different nationalities arrive in the south of Spain, in the city of Seville, where they are welcomed in a former outlying puticlub which has now been converted into a reception centre for asylum seekers and international protection. All of them receive the Red Card that accredits them as refugees and will have to face the challenge of reconstructing their new life in Spain. In one year they will have to learn Spanish, look for work, find a home and get to know the Spaniards through their culture and customs.
