Afghani Shams Ahmadi was deported from Bavaria to Kabul in January 2017. But what happened to him after deportation? And what about other young Afghans in the same situation?Without orientation and wandering the streets of Kabul, Shams Ahmadi longed to return to Germany. A new documentary chronicles his story, exploring what has become of him and other young deported Afghans in the year since they left. As calls continue for more deportations to Afghanistan despite the country’s precarious security situation, the documentary provides a glimpse into the challenges that await those who are sent back.
Some have made their way back to Europe, while others have remained in Afghanistan and started over.

The documentary reveals the stories of those who have struggled since their deportation, shedding light on the often-overlooked consequences of immigration policies.
