The film records the daily life of a deportation centre in Geneva, where around 25 to 30 men are waiting to be sent back. "Back" is not a home, but a place on a map of long obsolete borders. There's Ragip from Kosovo, who has a choice: submit and you get a regular flight. If not, it's a special flight with handcuffs, police escort, and violence if necessary.

Director
Fernand Meigar

Fernand Meigar was born in Tangier in 1961 to Spanish unionists exiled to Morocco. In 1963 they emigrated to Lausanne where he is still living. In the early 1980s he abandoned his business studies to co-found "Le Cabaret Orwell", a soon-to-become meeting point for French speaking Swiss underground culture as well as the renowned rock music venue "I.a Dolce Vita". Starting with video projections and experimental films he soon became a self-taught freelance producer, director and editor of documentaries. In 1985 he joined "Climage", a collective of engaged filmmakers.
