Fortress Europe has collapsed. North-Europeans are forced to migrate. Lucas, a middle-class man, gets stranded in a coastal village as he searches for a passage to a brighter elsewhere. Through the difficulties and dilemmas he faces, FALLOW explores how far the end justifies the means and how the price we are prepared to pay, can turn sacrifice into betrayal.
This debut fiction film by documentary filmmaker Laurent Van Lancker mixes contemporary realities with predictions of a possible nearby future. FALLOW is based on a novel by Elvis Peeters and filmed on location in real settings (refugee camps and the abandoned city of Doel, Belgium).
