On the Mediterranean, the sea where the western civilization was founded, thousands of refugees wait to be granted protection in Europe. At the doors of the old continent, they fight to keep alive their hope in spite of the precarious conditions under which they survive.

STRANDED takes a close look into the everyday life of these long-term refugees. Squatting in buildings in Athens or in refugee camps spread across the entire country, these men and women keep waiting the legal documents that will allow them to continue with their lives.
