What could be worse than the helpless feeling of not being able to control your own destiny? Tania, a refugee from Belarus, has lived illegally in Belgium for several years together with her son. After years of experiencing the daily paranoia of being discovered and extradited at any moment, the day arrives when the nightmare becomes a reality. Tania finds herself sentenced to endless waiting in a refugee camp without being able to influence her fate. In this very moving film, Olivier Masset-Depasse does not disappoint the audience as she presents the difficult every-day life of thousands of refugees in Europe. \"Illegal\" has won several film awards, including the official Belgian Oscar nominee, and was also a LUX Prize finalist.
