For 42 years, around 210.000 Saharawi have been living in camps in the Algerian desert due to the occupation of the Western Sahara by Morocco. The Saharawi are waiting for a promised referendum, which should enable them to decide on their future and the usage of their homeland. "February 27th“ is a national holiday and the name of the camp in which the film takes place. The film uses tableaus to tell about the life in the camps and about the difficulties of a temporary existence in exile. An existence that evolved into a home against their will and to this day represents a symbol of resistance and resilience. At the same time, it depicts their longing for a lost land that many Saharawi just know from stories but still call their home.
