"Why make (another) film about the Calais jungle - and why make it now? First, you may have seen endless news reports but actually there haven't been many feature docs about the Jungle. And there certainly hasn't been one like this. This film tells the unvarnished truth about what it was like to be there. What happened to a group of volunteers, who went for a series of very mixed motives, found themselves out of their depths and had to learn fast how to make themselves useful. They felt guilty, they felt elated and two of them fell in love. And why tell this story now? The Jungle may have gone, but the flow of refugees hasn't. We need a film which re-awakes public concern, shows politicians what must be done and helps us all learn from the past. This can be that film " -Christo Hird
Mo and Tamim find themselves in the Jungle for very different reasons, and with very different purposes. When their paths cross, they develop an unexpected connection.
