Summary note:
The multi-award winning African journalist Sorious Samura tells the story of how when he first arrived in Europe he worked 24-hours a day, six days a week before finally making a break-through and becoming the film-maker he wanted to be. With such experience, he takes us on a journey in this film as he follows migrants from West African countries as they set out to breach the walls of Fortress Europe. He shows us how they face death in the desert journey across the Sahara, before an equally hazardous voyage across the sea to Spain. The refugees willingly risk death to build a new future for themselves, because they don't see one in Africa.In this documentary Sorious attempts to understand why they feel there is no hope for them in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria etc. He asks why they think Europe, if they survive their perilous journey, will have more to offer them? A personal and moving account of migrants dangerous and long journeys from Africa to Europe.
