Feature / At the border / Tamriko in Warsaw by Agnieszka Rayss

The story of Tamriko and Sofia, two Georgian friends who have been living in Poland for over 8 years. Their visas and passports expired a long time ago. They have a small stand at the bazaar in one of Warsaw’s suburbs. The bazaar is illegal, and they live in constant fear of being arrested and deported. Tamriko’s two sons were born in Poland. When her husband left her, Tamriko’s mother came from Georgia to help her with the children, but in 2005 she and the little boys were caught by the police and deported back to Georgia.
