Synopsis :

Summer holidays. On a motorway rest area in northern France, a family traveling to London is having breakfast when a radio news flash on the alarming humanitarian situation in the refugee camps in northern France breaks out. Annoyed, Sylvie, the mother of the family, does not want to hear anything about the misfortune of the migrants - it is the holidays after all. A stone’s throw from the motorway service area, in the middle of the forest, Hana, a young isolated minor migrant (survives) lives in the open air in the refugee camp - the “jungle”. Like thousands of other migrants, she dreams of crossing to England – UK – “You Kai” -, but the border is closed. Harassed and abused by the smugglers at night, she then switches to her imagination and undertakes an imaginary journey to England, her fantasized host country. But reality takes hold of her, the sun gives way to the rising storm, which rumbles: England doesn’t want her either.
