In the small town of Horndal, central Sweden, Furkan, an 11-year-old boy who arrived from Kosovo with his family 4 years ago, is faced with a medical mystery that has changed the life of his family. His two sisters, Ibadeta (17) and Djeneta (15), have fallen into a coma for three years and nearly four years respectively. They are not the only ones in Sweden who are victims of the «resignation syndrome» that affects asylum-seeking children, often following a threat of deportation. Djeneta is the first to fall into this state.
