This film shows graphically what it must be like to be dependant on a range of people who for the most part wish you weren't there.
In Italy they meet up with other Africans and are introduced to a squat, which wasn't quite what they expected. In terms of work opportunities, there aren't any, and they are exploited as cheap labour picking oranges. However, the lead character, Ayiva, is not only a good worker but is also adept at developing relationships, leading to him being welcomed to the home of an Italian family.
Local villagers are far from happy about the presence of the Africans and in time tensions boil over leading to attacks on the immigrants. This provokes retaliation, with the authorities rounding them up and sealing off their squats.
Will Ayiva stay, or will he return to Burkina Faso, where he has a partner and a daughter. Earlier in the film he is seen speaking to them on Skype, turning off the webcam at one point so that they don't see the tears in his eyes.
The film was released from Italy, appearing at the 2015 Cannes Festival, and while the Africans speak French much of the dialogue is in fact in Italian, as are the credits.
