Directed by: Fernand Melgar
Awaiting definite deportment from the Swiss territory, rejected asylum seekers and undocumented migrants are jailed at the administrative detention centre Frambois. Between wardens and prisoners relations of friendship and hate, respect and revolt are formed until the announcement of the deportment, which is experienced like a stab. Those who refuse to leave are handcuffed, tied up and forcibly put in a plane. In this extreme situation, despair has a name: special flight.
