With the UK’s hardening immigration policy in the background, director Mira Erdevički follows the lives of three Roma: Petr Torák, Denisa Gannon and Ondrej Oláh. Settled in the UK over 20 years ago, the trio still feel attached to their native Slovakia and the Czech Republic. As the UK goes into lockdown, they film their lives throughout the Covid pandemic and the aftermath of Brexit to form this quietly radical and heart-warming film about identity and finding home.

A rare glimpse at the realities of our bureaucratic systems – both when they work with inclusive mainstream education, and when they don’t, for the thousands of vulnerable people forced to navigate the complex post-Brexit EU settlement scheme – this documentary is an urgent and essential portrait of the nation today.
