The daily life of refugees (Syrian, Kurdish, Pakistani, Afghani, and other) in the camp of Idomeni. Refugees waiting in queues for food, tea and doctors; waiting to cross the border between Greece and Macedonia. One day, Europe closes its borders for them once and for all. The "inhabitants" of Idomeni decide, in their turn, to occupy the train tracks, blocking the trains that carry goods across the border.
