Special Flight – Waiting For Deportaion in «Vol spécial»   

While awaiting deportation from Switzerland, men are jailed at the administrative detention centre. Some of them have spent several years in Switzerland, worked and started a family, but their requests for asylum have failed. Although incarceration may last up to 24 months, deportation by flight are announced without warning and its enforcement is imminent. Behind the closed prison doors, tension builds up day by day. Since the death of a Nigarian citizen on one of the special flights in 2010, the deportation is a hot issue in swiss politics. This documentary is a very crucial depiction of the current situation which is summoned up by the French expression «Vol spécial».
