At the end of 2015, UNHCR estimated that there were between 160,0000 and 300,000 stateless individuals in Syria alone. They have no documentation to prove their identities.
This feature documentary follows the story of a man aiming to change that; an illegal forger working undercover in Turkey to create passports and certificates for this lost population of Syrians.
By obscuring his identity, our forger narrates the story and walks the audience through his mission to provide Syrians with their rightful identities without the Regime.
Documents bought from the Syrian government can cost thousands of dollars or worse, force the applicants into jail. Our forger’s work thus involves carefully replicating the passports, family books, marriage, death and birth certificates of the Regime.
