Durrab’s Labyrinth

Els van Driel, Eefje Blankevoort

Every day teenagers who flee their war torn countries try to cross Europe’s borders in search of protection and a better life. Some reach their destination. Others end up in a shadow world of trafficking, prostitution and modern day slavery.

Durrab (16) is one of them and becomes entangled in the shady world of human smuggling. Prone to influence and seduced by the promise of making money quickly, he falls prey to people who lead him astray. Durrab says he wants to quit this way of life, but will he ever find a way out of the labyrinth?
