The journey – In the Central African town of Kakuma, three friends plan to leave for Europe on a cargo ship: they hope to find a job and fulfil their dreams. But the risks are high: those who previously attempted this feat have disappeared. After a long and tiring journey, the three friends finally arrive to their destination: but just as soon as they get there, they are sent back. Patolo is the only one who stays and, once employed as a journalist, he is able to bring his friends to Europe. Arima becomes a model and Sonflack a writer.
