A group of men – all undocumented immigrants coming from countries like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Morocco & Cameroon – takes on our invitation a ride on a tourist tram through the city of Antwerp. The voice over intercom tells them in Dutch, English, French and German about the touristic sights the tram passes by. This tram ride should be regarded as a welcome to the city they live in, but where
they are not really welcome.
