The violence of the Arab Spring has led to widespread displacement in the greater Middle East. Many people have crossed the Mediterranean trying to find passage into Europe. Italy’s island of Lampedusa has become notorious for the massive number of illegal immigrants from Northern Africa passing through it.

The film explains local residents’ conflicting attitude towards migrants and how it affects Europe as a whole.
