Awarded the Golden Bear in Berlin, this documentary, shot around the Italian island of Lampedusa, focuses on a number of inhabitants, as it explores how the everyday life of the island’s inhabitants attempts to come to terms with the harrowing experiences of the countless migrants, who have braved the waters of the Mediterranean in cramped, fragile boats, in the hope of finding peace, freedom and happiness in Europe.
