Kenedi goes back home

Kenedi goes back home

An account of Yugoslavs who left their war-torn country in the nineties to spend over ten years in Western Europe as refugees or asylum-seekers. In the second half of 2002 the European Union started sending many of these people, mostly Roma, back to Serbia and Montenegro, believing there was no more reason for their stay abroad. Whole families were deported overnight, regardless of the fact that the majority of children born in the West had already become completely integrated. – Main protagonists of this inhumane story are Kenedi Hasani – a kind, witty, resourceful and almost pathologically optimistic street rat – and his younger friend.
