In Switzerland, the land of humanitarian action, hundreds of people are sentenced every year for having offered a meal, a drink, or a room to sleep in to people in deep distress: our country is among those that most severely punishes these acts. Filmed in Switzerland, in Briançon and around the Mediterranean, this RTS documentary, which will have its world premiere at the FIFDH, presents an uncompromising and moving investigation into the very contemporary notion of the "crime of solidarity", notably by giving the floor to Swiss people who have provided assistance, including the pastor from Neuchâtel, Norbert Valley, and the 72-year-old retired Basel resident Anni Lanz.
