The Van

The van is a gruesome tale portraying the flipside of Europe’s growth economy. We follow an Eastern European workforce, normally confined to the shadows, where badly paid manual labour and self contained societies with their own rules, hierarchies and codes are the norm. What is a young man to do in order to break free of these shackles he has been locked into? The only way to embark on a dream is to raise enough money to get away, but this means stepping into the van - with very real mortal danger being the stake.
