Francis

Francis

Ten Westafrican men come to Sweden as guest workers in the forest industry, planting trees. Contrary to previous agreements, they are paid on provision - and a minuscule amount. Francis won't stand to work under the given conditions, where he can't even afford his ticket to go back home. He tries to make himself a better future. But on the way he is faced with difficult decisions. For himself, the group, and his best friend Eric.

Written by Maja Winkler and Kristoffer Malmsten. Directed by Ahmed Abdullahi.
