Two Senegalese brothers who have illegally immigrated to Italy struggle to survive in a new and often hostile environment. Done in the style of a documentary, this drama recounts their experiences there. Dreaming of all the opportunities and riches to be found in Europe, Yaro moves to Italy and soon after his arrival suggests that his younger brother Demba go there to meet him so that they can earn more money for the family back home. Demba is there only two months when someone murders Yaro. Anxious to know who did it and why, Demba and his friends begin an all-out search that will take them the entire length of Italy.
