“Red Zone” concerns the ongoing refugee crisis in Greece. The documentary portrays, through the parallel stories of four Afghan youths, the identical adventure that all Afghan immigrants and refugees (who for reasons of life and death have abandoned their homeland) in an effort to create a new life in the West, with Greece as a gateway to Europe. However, they escape one war only to find themselves in another, inside the “red zone” of European-Greece.
