Special Flight


Episode Info

The award-winning "Special Flight" examines life at the Frambois detention center in Geneva, Switzerland, which houses undocumented foreigners. Detainees, some of whom have lived in the country for years, can spend up to 18 months at such centers waiting for their appeals to be heard. The decisions generally go against them, however, and then they face a choice: willingly board a plane to their native lands or be forcibly evicted from Switzerland, a process that doesn't always end well for them.
