Athen, Greece

A dog approaches Amin as he sits on a wall in Athens. He went to prison for three months in Athens because he didn't have valid identification papers. He is supposed to leave Athens within 30 days of being released from prison but he doesn't have a passport or any valid papers. He is waiting for a call from the people traffickers who are supposed to help him to get out of Greece and on towards northern Europe.
Amin (16) fled from the Taliban in Uruzgan province in Afghanistan and came to Norway in 2009 with his mother, father and two younger siblings. They were moved to the small town of Aal. In January 2014, after almost five years, the family was deported back to Kabul. With the help of human traffickers, Amin made his way back to Europe on his own while his family has gone into hiding in Iran. Amin's dream is to have his old life back - his friends, school, football and safety for his family. He has been in prison twice since his return.
