During the last two decades, thousands of unaccompanied Moroccan minors have arrived in Europe irregularly and without the company of an adult.

Minor Lives gains unprecedented access to a group of Moroccan minors that have left their country and try to get to Europe through an uncertain journey that will change them forever. For over a year, the camera accompanies them from Morocco to Sweden, passing through Spain, France and Germany and becomes a witness to their encounter with an idealized world.
