Director Bram Jansen and his team are attempting to map the system behind the migration issue. To this end, they spoke with eighteen people from the "refugee chain": from social workers to judges, from buddies to skeptics and from status holders to young people living in illegality.

You turn eighteen. From here on out, you can drink alcohol, drive a car, and vote -- and your parents have no further say about it. At least, that's how it is for an eighteen-year-old who was born in the Netherlands. But if you have come here on your own as a refugee, the revelry is more restricted. In this case, you have roughly two options: recognition or illegality. In both cases, you are on your own. Achttien focuses in on an uncomfortable story that is told far too infrequently.

Based on the story of an eighteen-year-old refugee, Bram Jansen and actors Soufiane Moussouli, Angelo Schuurmans, Serin Utlu and Zineb Fallouk explore the limits of empathy. A cast of committed actors with additional positions as social worker or volunteer goes in search of answers to questions such as "How to do good?" And "Where do we draw a line?" The further the investigation, the harder the boundaries turn out to be.
No left or right argument. No plea for or against "the refugee", but an honest and uncomfortable story that is told too little.
