Within a few months, the Kutupalong refugee camp became the largest in the world. 700,000 people from the Rohingya Muslim minority fled Myanmar (formerly Burma) in 2017 to escape genocide and seek asylum in Bangladesh.
Prisoners of a huge and yet little publicized humanitarian crisis, Kalam, Mohammad, Montas and other exiles want their voices to be heard. Between poetry and nightmares, food distribution and football matches, they bear witness to their daily reality and the ghosts of their past. In this place almost outside of space and time, is it still possible to exist?
