Played magnificently by themselves and without a script, CHANCE tells the nocturnal attempt of four young Sudanese asylum seekers to get from  Belgium to the UK. Filmed entirely in the trailer of a lorry, this docu-fiction is a rare, privileged and deeply human encounter with four individuals and with a reality that is too often invisible. All night long, four young men between four walls, replay their quotidian reality in this theater-like black box.
