In Bas Devos' 'Ghost Tropic', the viewer is given a radically different view of Brussels from the haunted city he captured in 'Hellhole' only a few months earlier.After shooting 'Hellhole', that documents the blanket of fear encapsulating Brussels after the attacks of March 22, the director feared he had given the wrong impression of his home base and took to the streets again for this roadmovie, bringing a ray of sunshine to the city. This low-budget art house production follows 59-year-old Khadija as she tries to make her way home after having missed her stop on the last subway. The camera is kinder to Brussels here, and manages to find the beauty in every nook and cranny, even in the mundane.
