A teacher uses math to explain to a group of refugees what their arrival will cost society. In three acts, director and screenwriter Guido Hendrikx explains the European view of the refugee crisis. Hendrikx shows where the refugees’ dreams clash with reality and forces us to think hard about our own position. STRANGER IN PARADISE was the opening night film of the 2016 edition of IDFA, where it won a Special Jury Award.
