Problemski Hotel tells the love story of Bipul & Lidia during December 2015. While Bipul is happy to stay where he is – the asylum center installed on the top floor of a financial tower in the heart of Brussels-, Lidia is determined to travel further to London. Is Bipul ready to change his view on the world? And aren’t we actually all - sans papiers & avec papiers - longing to be somewhere else?
