Millions of people live illegally in Europe. Forced by circumstances, they lead a virtually invisible life. The German documentary maker Andreas Voigt decided to follow five such people for a year. Five stories of undocumented migrants, from different parts of the world, living in five European countries. Zakari, a deserted army officer, fled from Algeria, where his life is in danger. He has been living illegally in Germany for ten years—his story was "not serious enough" for a residence permit—and he still hopes one day to be able to return to a safe, democratic Algeria. Edita from Ecuador doesn’t even think about returning to her fatherland. The transsexual feels at home in Paris, where she gets a new temporary visa every three months. Malika, a Chechen, just wants a better future for her daughter. And Prince is awaiting his compulsory return to Nigeria in a Dutch cell. Oumar, finally, has just set foot on European soil—he reached the Spanish coast from Ceuta—when his dreams are shattered. The border police are waiting for him. Without commenting or making any political analysis, "INVISIBLE-illegal in Europe" sketches five portraits of people who keep hoping for happiness but have to submit to their heart-rending fate.
