The Future Starts Today

45' (GER, ENG subs)
A documentary about three young men and their way to a better life, away from war and destruction.

Tenzin from Tibet, Ramadan from Somalia and Amir from Afghanistan have one thing in common: they had to flee from war and have been chased since they were teenagers. The boys had to leave their friends and families behind to survive. After they finally arrived in Munich, all of them were granted the opportunity of visiting the "Schlaue-Schule", a school for refugees. The principal, the teachers and social workers try to help young refugees get a degree and a better future.

They have all experienced jarring trauma. They have struggled and fought for survival and most importantly, they are all motivated to learn. Why? – Because they know that this school is the building block to a brighter future. Their goal is to complete secondary school in two years and establish a career that will allow them to be independent.
