In the video we enter the small world of an international student kitchen in the Belgian city, Ghent. We see that there is no better way to understand each other than by cooking together and sharing food. Also the image of 'the immigrant' changes, we see more than one 'idea of a person'. We see the enormous diversity amongst immigrants.
