A harrowing look at immigrants from Burkina Faso who face discrimination in Italy. Not a "fun" movie but it is well-made, timely, and worth a watch.

Interesting film. As someone in North America, reading about the flood of refugees into Europe, it can be difficult to imagine what the they are dealing with as they struggle to make a better life for themselves. A bit long but worth watching.

Best friends Ayiva and Abas live hard lives in Burkina Faso and dream of a better future that seems to await them in Europe, as evidenced by the glittering snapshots they've seen on social media of an immigrant's life abroad. Making the dangerous journey through Africa and across the Mediterranean Sea, they end up in the Italian city of Rosarno, only to lead equally hard lives of long working hours, harsh living conditions, and animosity toward them. 89%/71%
