Necla is a Syrian refugee struggling for life together with her 4 children in one of the poor districts of Ankara. Making her living through the goods she sells on a workbench in her backyard, Necla directly depends on it to be able to continue her life, but she has a problem.

The Wall is a documentary demonstrating a 5-minutes cut from Necla’s life to have a grasp of the wall we build against the refugees.
