Where does the line between public service and humanitarian duty stand in the walk-in healthcare centre in the outskirts of Paris? In this islet at the very end of an empty hallway, doctors and psychiatrists try to mend the living, sick, beaten, famished, traumatised refugees who are more than statistics but men and women trying to stand tall. French-Senegalese director Alice Diop’s unfaltering documentary shows our society’s inadequacies in managing an ever-escalating crisis.
