In the last two decades, thousands of Moroccan minors have emigrated to Europe irregularly, unaccompanied by their families. Minor Lives follows the ups and downs of a group of these boys for more than a year, from their origins in Morocco to Northern Europe, exploring the meaning of this journey and the effect it has on their own and their families' lives. A human and humanistic portrayal exclusively focussed on the minors which invites the spectator to reflect on the subject and to forget their preconceptions.
