It is winter. Lampedusa, “the island of the refugees,” looks desolate. The tourists are gone and immigrants who are still there struggle to be transferred to the Continent. Since the old ferry boat  that connected the island with the mainland has gone burned, the mayor Giusi Nicolini and fishermen are seeking another boat. The transportation of the refugees finally takes place by air, while the fishermen occupy the port in protest. Lampedusa is now isolated. The island is running out of food supplies and the protesters start fighting each other. A small community on the borders of Europe and its strenuous struggle for solidarity with African refugees.
