The two Vietnamese filmmakers, Nghiem Quynh Trang and Do Duy Hoang, made a short movie describing the visit of a foreigner by a Czech doctor with the insurance card issued by the commercial health insurance company.
Through the stories of immigrants and discussions with experts, the filmmakers show the absurdity of the system of commercial health insurance for immigrants in the Czech Republic. The system discriminates foreigners in the access to the health care and lead many families into serious financial problems. After the screening the participants will be able to join the debate with the protagonists of the movie.

The movie is part of the campaign for including immigrants in the Czech Republic into the system of public health insurance.
