Lesvos, Greece is the desperate destination for Syrians
to reach by boat. In 2015, Three clowns are admitted into the refuge camp to entertain the kids. But in 2016, it’s a no-go for the small little group. These clowns try to get in but end up basically posing aggressively at the police they encounter. At the end after waiting so many days, they finish by blowing bubbles at a little girl who is with her parents at the port. They resort really to interacting with dogs and themselves. They have a great need to perform.
