For the English, the French port town of Calais is the gateway to Europe or a place to buy cheap alcohol. But for hundreds of migrants it is the final barrier in the desperate search for a new life in England. For the inhabitants of Calais life can be very hard, filmmaker Marc Isaacs carefully juxtaposes the lives of refugees, migrants and English expatriates prompting each to reflect on life in their home country and their dreams for a better future. Calais: The Last Border is an intimate film about life in a transient town.
