Marseille, 2014. Dozens of Armenian asylum seekers try to survive while waiting for their applications to be considered. They left behind them a country whose people have settled around the world for more than a century... A country all describe as a desert, abandoned by its inhabitants, emptied of its life. Forced stillness, impotence; they live in an in-between space: between two countries, between two lives. They exist in an abstract time and space, made of nothing, where their life escapes them completely. By the shore, they float in limbo.
