This is a poignant debut feature docu-movie by Director Christopher Tew who was a self-taught visual artist before he ventured into documentaries and filmmaking.  Following the characters of Gundega, Melanie and other people living in an immigrant camp in the woodlands of Harlow in UK, Director Tew  used only a single low-resolution camera that prevented him from shooting at night-time.  However, it was never a hindrance to come up with very in-depth, true-to-life and sometimes emotional details of the characters who are all struggling in their own way, despite of the condition that they're in.  An eye-opening real-life account of immigrant life in the UK as seen from the stories of Gundega and Melanie. Worth checking out!
