Awaiting definite deportation from the Swiss territory, men are jailed at the administrative detention centre Frambois. As their request for asylum has failed, they are ordered to leave, some of them after having spent several years in Switzerland, worked, paid taxes, and started a family.

Awaiting definite deportation from the Swiss territory, men are jailed at the administrative detention centre Frambois. As their request for asylum has failed, they are ordered to leave, some of them after having spent several years in Switzerland, worked, paid taxes, and started a family. Although incarceration may be as long as 24 months, the deportation is announced without warning and its implementation is imminent. Those who refuse to leave are handcuffed, tied up and forcibly put on a plane. In this extreme situation, despair has a name: special flight.

The filmmaker immersed himself for nine months in the administrative detention centre Frambois in Geneva, one of the 28 deportation centres for the paperless in Switzerland.
Behind the closed prison doors, tension builds day by day. On one side there are wardens full of humanist values, on the other there are men defeated by fear and stress. Relations of friendship and hate, respect and revolt are formed until the announcement of the deportment, which is experienced like a stab.

Human Rights Human Wrongs er den eneste filmfestivalen i Norden som hvert år vier hele sitt program til å belyse den aktuelle menneskerettighetssituasjonen i verden. Festivalen består av rundt 20 dokumentarfilmer, fordelt på fire tema: Ikkevoldelige revolusjoner, Status Illegal, Næringsliv og menneskerettigheter samt Kampen for rettferdighet. De fleste filmene er Norgespremierer.

Human Rights Human Wrongs arrangeres i samarbeid mellom Oslo Dokumentarkino, Menneskerettighetshuset i Oslo og Oslosenteret for fred og menneskerettigheter. Billetter til de ulike filmene og debattene kjøpes i døra.
