Ten-year-old Sil and eleven-year-old Merlijn are about to go on a big adventure: they will visit a refugee camp at Lesbos and stay there for a week. Through their mothers, who both work there, they have heard stories about the children that live there. Now they want to see for themselves. What is it like to live in a camp when you are a child? First encounters such as handing out food and careful greetings soon become playful gatherings and good conversations in several languages. Is this the start of a friendship?

Kim Brand graduated from the Utrecht School of the Arts in 2009 with her short documentary The Care Factory. The film was selected for the IDFA 2009 Student Competition and won her a Wildcard of the Netherlands Film Fund. Kim turned this into What the Cat Sees, a documentary that was nominated for a Golden Calf at the Netherlands Film Festival. The year after, she made her first mid-length film Among Women, about the initiation rites of two girls in Zambia, which was shown at many international festivals (such as DOK Leipzig and Festival dei Popoli).
