She lives in a small town, talks with her girlfriends about boys they fancy and plays football in the local club. Rokhsar would be living the normal life of a European 14-year old if she hadn't fled Afghanistan 5 years ago with her family and ended up in Denmark. Her application for asylum was rejected, the family can be deported at any time. Thus Rokhsar spends her days on the phone trying to speak to the relevant authorities, in constant anticipation of the end of her days as a teenager. The Wait
is a dense documentation of the terrible, immediate effects of abstract asylum policies on those directly affected.
