The fate of clandestine emigration…- Pape is an intelligent boy who has been supporting his family ever since his father’s dead. One day Pape meets an old friend who has emigrated to Italy: the friend glorifies his new life and convinces the boy, without the knowledge of his family, to emigrate. Not long after, the radio announces that the body of a boy was found: he was trying to reach the Italian coast, one more victim of clandestine emigration.
