Dystopia from the Greek δυσ– “bad” and τόπος, “place”.
A group of children are doing a simple exercise that we have all done at least once: Draw your house, draw everything around it, draw the Sun and a landscape in the background and use the colors you wish… and that simple drawing will say a lot about you.
This is the starting point of Dystopia, a film that brings us closer to different places in the world where children are in a vulnerable situation, from a prison or a camp for refugees, to an Asian or African village… For these children, what is the meaning of words like home, family or play? They all have grown up in hostile environments, hard for a proper education, learning in a precarious way… and worst of all, every year thousands of them disappear without a trace.
This film approaches to those “bad places”, places where the same stories are being repeated over and over again…
