In a refuge in Morocco, time seems to stand still for the 750 stray dogs waiting to be adopted; their lives following a precise, prison-like routine. They groom, they growl, they feed, and relax in the sun. Then the routine happens all over again the next day.

Themes: issues of migration, incarceration, treatment of animals and refugees

Advisory: There are instances of dogs growling at each other, which draws a comparison between the plight of caged dogs to the treatment of refugees.
