On March 18th 2016, the European Union declared that all irregular migrants arriving in Greece from Turkey after March 20th would be returned. Most of the Greeks living on the island of Lesvos are descended from the wave of refugees that arrived on the island from Turkey in the 1920s. Descended from the same wave is the American filmmaker Richard Ledes. He visits Lesvos where he speaks with refugees detained in a legal limbo, with the volunteers who assist them and with the inhabitants of the island. Omnipresent and impossible for the filmmaker to reconcile are the beauty of the island and the predicament of the refugees now held there indefinitely.
