SynopsisWadim K. grew up in Germany. But he never received a German passport, because his parents were refugees.
In 2005 he found himself being deported to Latvia – a country he could hardly remember. During his final visit to Hamburg he threw himself in front of a train. Through photos and very personal family videos as well as interviews with Wadim’s parents, friends and other contemporary witnesses, the 90-minute film WADIM pieces together the mosaic of a short life, representative of the lives led by 87,000 other people with only a provisional status to stay in Germany. It questions the inflexible scaffold of residence rights legislation and causes people to think about very topical issues: Where do people belong? What does the word ‘home’ mean? And can you take it away from someone by law?
