SYNOPSIS

Messstetten – a typical German village somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Recently Baden-Württemberg’s second reception centre for asylum seekers opened its gates here and became the temporary home for 1000 people from all over the world. Mohamad, Ahmad, Abraham and Yohannes are four of them who share their stories with us.

Set in peaceful German landscapes, HERZLICH WILLKOMMEN tells stories of violent times while observing daily life somewhere in between German bureaucracy and hospitality.
