A waiting family

This documentary portrays a christian Pakistani family that has fled its home country, to wait in the Netherlands if their request for asylum is granted. The legal procedure takes years – and meanwhile the children become ‘Dutch’: the youngest can’t even remember anything of Pakistan. The director follows the family for 5 years, until finally a decision is taken.
