PlotSOS for Human Rights - ©Jürgen Scheer

Jamila, Naisha and Kerim are three adolescents on the road: Jamila has been deported from Germany to Ghana, the Ghanaian Naisha would like to study and find a job, Kerim has escaped from the war in Afghanistan. Their reasons to escape are as various as they are, but the destination is the same: Europe. But Europe is closing its borders.

A play for people from 12 onwards about human rights, racism in our society and the struggle for a self-determined life.
