Magnus Gertten

Kyrgyzstan today: Just married Alisher (18 years old) has to leave his pregnant wife Dildora (17 years old) to work in Russia, 3 500 km from home. He’s one of the 12—16 Russian guest workers, who are forced to leave their countries and work, mostly illegally, under harsh conditions in low-paid jobs in order to support their families. After eight months of hardship in Moscow, Alisher decides to return to his young family, although he has failed to earn enough money to provide for them. This is a love story clouded by migration and modern slavery.
