Since 2017 Belgium has become a passageway for refugees who are fleeing both their homelands and the EU immigration policies.
They spend their nights trying to sneak into trucks parking along the highways, hoping to reach England the next day. They call these nocturnal attempts CHANCE.
A night of CHANCE, spent entirely in a truck, is the spatiotemporal frame for this docu-fiction: a black-box, cut from the outside world, inside which the protagonists, four young Sudanese, replay their quotidian reality.
