Synopsis

In her efforts to obtain accommodation and, therefore, a residence permit in Austria, Marinela—an overburdened, single Romanian mother—relies on her daughter Ilinca as a mediator and translator. However, Ilinca has other plans. She wants to talk to Bubu; she wants to go home. 'InBetween Home' uses a touch of humour to compassionately portray the struggles of first-generation immigrants as they encounter language barriers, bureaucracy, and homesickness in their hope of finding a new life.
