Synopsis

The film was made about the country programme of the UN Refugee Agency in Azerbaijan at the time of filming, and is made up of ten what could be called ‘vignettes’, or profiles of individual projects. Taken together these project portraits aim to give a good representation of what a fairly typical operation to support peoples displaced by violent conflicts would be like anywhere in the world.

In this sense, the film is more like a ‘jigsaw puzzle’, the individual pieces of which, when put together, give the viewer a complete picture of what the film hopes to communicate, than a story with a main protagonist’s journey, separate acts, and a central conflict.

The film’s action starts early on Monday morning and continues through to Friday afternoon. During each day of the working week, two projects are presented. One is in the morning, and the other is in the afternoon.
