Two best friends journey across desert and sea from West Africa to Southern Italy in search of a better life. But when they arrive, the glittering snapshots they saw on Facebook detailing an immigrant's life abroad do not match with the tough challenges they are met with in their new lives. One friend begins to assimilate through hard work and a sympathetic employer, who welcomes him into his family, while the other friend grows increasingly disillusioned with his hardscrabble reality. A vicious attack on the migrant community explodes into a full-blown riot, sending both friends into wildly different futures.
