Transporting a newly bought sofa to your home is an easy thing to organise. However, when you live in a refugee camp it quickly becomes a mammoth and complex task.

As two young men attempt to navigate the streets of the Shatila camp in Lebanon with their new red sofa the difficulties they encounter become indicative of the complexities and absurdities of everyday life in the camp.
