Awaiting definite deportment from the Swiss territory, illegal migrants are jailed at the administrative detention centre Frambois. Behind the closed prison doors, tension builds day by day. Between wardens and detainees, relations of friendship and hate, respect and revolt are formed until the announcement of the deportment, which is experienced like a stab.
THE WORLD IS LIKE THAT explores the destiny of five of the protagonists in the film "Special Flight" after being deported from Switzerland. Being paperless migrants, they were uprooted from their host country and torn away from their children. Back in Senegal, Kosovo, Gambia and Cameroon, they found themselves totally destitute, excluded from their families and sometimes even tortured. This film is an intimate portrait of these broken men bearing witness to the brutality of the migration policy in Switzerland and in Europe.
