Now, safely in the heart of Europe, he is sent to an asylum center and assigned a bed in a shared dorm where he will spend the next nine years.

Told with compassion and a unique sense of humor, this is an inspiring tale of survival, a close-up view of the hidden world of refugees and human smugglers, and a sobering reflection of our times.
