Being Okey

Eleven years ago, a mob tried to kill Okey and his boyfriend in their hometown in Nigeria, where homosexuality is a crime. They only narrowly escape death - yet Switzerland doesn't grant Okey asylum. Caught between the constant fear of deportation and the hope for a safe life, Okey shares his inner strife. So at the Zurich Pride, accompanied by booming techno beats, he experiences what freedom really means. But in the next instance he is consumed by his past. He hopes to live in dignity in Switzerland but his future is built on unstable ground: the answer to his new asylum request will decide the course of his life.
