Documentary by Wil Mathijs about Bulgarian migrants who sought happiness in Belgium but went from bad to worse.

Since Bulgaria, the country with the lowest wages in Europe, became a member of the Union in 2007, around 15,000 Bulgarians emigrate every year in search of a better future in the West. However, many are stranded on the outskirts of our society and camp in remote places in and around the cities. Wil Mathijs sketches a portrait of Bulgarian migrants who sought happiness in Belgium but went from bad to worse.
