In Belgrade in Serbia, Diana, Sam and Felix operate a grass roots NGO. Over the years they have worked with the migrants making the perilous journey on their way to Western Europe, providing them with the essential items, food and clothing they need to survive. Εver since the closure of the Balkan Route, they start their journey, from Turkey to Belgium, putting together integration festivals for migrants and locals alike, to come together through workshops, food, art and music, with the intent to ease any existing tensions between these communities and bring light to the plight of refugees.

Through their own journey, this film offers an exclusive look into the so called Balkan Route, through the people they meet along the way, from migrants making the journey to ordinary citizens and organisations caught up in this humanitarian crisis.
