This rich, observational, ripped-from-the-headlines story demands a wide audience.The Guardian
A shocking film that puts the life-and-death struggle of refugees in the spotlight.
Ayiva and Abas are two men making the dangerous journey from Africa to Italy for a better life. But their death-defying expedition across the sea is only half the battle as they struggle to adjust to their new surroundings and are forced to find whatever work they can or face being deported.
