A bus stop, a square, a few blocks on a suburban road. Zohra Hamadi, metal rods down her spine, gets off the bus. She walks upright, finally able to breathe easily. But Europe only grants her a few days of respite. Zohra Hamadi decides to reach out to the future. EUROPE – a story of forced fiction.

An audio-visual portrait of a neighborhood in the city of Chicago. Life presents itself in two contradictory ways: as seen through the windows of an apartment filmed over the course of three years – peaceful, mundane, ambiguous; and as told through the local police scanner recorded during the last year of the Trump administration, also the first year of the ongoing pandemic – violent, tragic, absurd. From here, a neighborhood is observed, a city is echoed, and a country is footnoted.

Think of America, I told myself.
The cities, the homes, the people, the arrivals, the departures, the children coming and leaving, death, life, movement, speech.
Think of the deep sigh inside of all things alive in America. Bend down. And pick up what others let go to waste from life.
So the wind won’t blow it all away.
