The arduous pilgrimage of two men across Africa and the Mediterranean Sea seeking the dream of a better life.
After much uncertainty, Ayiva decides to leave his home in Burkina Faso and travel to Italy in hopes of finding a better life and providing for his sister and her daughter. Together with his friend, Abas, they embark on the grueling journey. Before them lies the parched Sahara Desert, bandits, a wild voyage across the Mediterranean Sea and prejudice and racism on the opposite shore. Koudous Seihon in the role of Ayiva contributes his personal experience as a migrant forced by adverse circumstances to seek a better life elsewhere.
