Italy, May 2016
Located near Tunisia, in the Mediterranean Sea, the island of Lampedusa has become famous in recent years as the place of passage of a large and uninterrupted flow of migrants. The Italian and European authorities have put in place a plan supposed to control this flow and protect the new arrivals. In reality, they only check the health status of the migrants, register them and send them to Sicily or southern Italy shortly afterwards. They are then left to their own devices. While waiting for this disillusionment, most of the new migrants in Lampedusa are mostly relieved and happy to have arrived alive. Before they realize that the journey is far from over.
