Description:
  Thousands of illegal immigrants roam the streets of European cities, looking for work or luck. Invisible. Their lives reduced to the TV sound byte of men found dead in shipping containers. Welcome Europa follows eight young men, Kurdish, Moroccan and Romanian as they try to find their way to Paris, Amsterdam or Madrid. No visas, entirely on their own, they struggle for survival.

A hot meal, a rare shower are pretty much all the help they get. Political oppression or poverty forced them from home. Their goal is to find a way to provide for their families. The European Dream falls apart even as they reach to welcome it. In their raw existence on the streets, prostitution looms like an inevitable destination. Some fall to the bottom hard. Sink or swim; they all face the ultimate question. What is it to be a man?

Languages: English, Turk, Spanish, Romanian, Arad, and French with English subtitles
