Tania and Ivan, her 14 year-old son, are illegal immigrants from Russia, who have been
living in Belgium for 8 years. In a permanent state of alert, Tania lives in constant fear
of having her identity checked by the police - until the day she is arrested. The mother
and the son are separated. Tania is placed in a holding centre. She does everything
in her power to find her son again, in spite of the constant deportation threat hanging
over her head.
