In search of a better life, a boatful of Nigerians wash up on the shores of Greece and head for Athens. There they embark on a precarious new life. Turning to illegal activities to make money, the paperless immigrants fall easy prey to ruthless crime bosses. A dark and abrasive film, filled with vivid characters, whom director Petros Sevastikoglou views with calm compassion.
