The film captures the voices, faces and stories behind the demonstrations that in January 2010 in the small Calabrian town of Rosarno brought to light the deplorable and unjust condition of thousands of African laborers. Italy became aware of them, became scared and reacted violently: Rosarno was subsequently “evacuated” and the problem “solved.”
