"Bye baba and mama, I miss you a lot. Tomorrow it's my birthday and I will turn twelve. I'll tell you where I sleep and what school I attend. I'll show you everything with my selfie-stick." When Tareq flees because of the war in Syria, he has to leave his parents, sister and brother behind. He goes to Europe, facing an uncertain future. When will he see his parents again? After a dangerous journey, the waiting begins in Holland. Would he still have left if he had known that it would take a year? Did he even have a choice?

'A year without my parents' is about the right of family reunion.
