In 1992 a wave of refugees from the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina reached Denmark. With the existing refugee camps completely full, the Red Cross pulled a giant ship into the canals of Copenhagen. The ship, Flotel Europa, became a temporary home for a thousand people waiting for decisions on their asylum applications. Among them was a 12-year-old boy, Vladimir, who had fled Sarajevo together with his mother and older brother. Two decades later, he takes us on the journey of growing up on this ship filled with echoes of the war — and other things that make up adolescence.
