Welcome to the USA @ Kino Krokodil

Finally Aliya has the visa in her pocket! But is it really such a good idea to leave everything behind and start over in the USA? What’s the flip side look like? The weeks until the departure drag on and Aliya starts to have doubts. She meets up with her queer friends, spends the nights with her ‘plus’-friend – we accompany her as she slowly says goodbye. A deeply thoughtful feature film and one of the first queer films to come out of Kazakhstan.
