Mohamad is 15-years old, Baser and Rahat Ali* are 12. The first two come from Afghanistan, the latter from Pakistan. What they have in common is that they all have spent some time in a detention center in Bulgaria, which is illegal.

Mohamad has just arrived in the open camp in Voenna Rampa, Sofia, after two weeks in a detention center.
