The western Alps between Italy and France have been a natural frontier over the centuries, as well as a place of passage and meeting. A land of connection, mediation between different peoples and cultures. The recent closing of the internal European borders have pushed migrant people to pass through high mountain paths such as those that line the lifts of the ski area known as "The Milky Way". During the day the sky slopes are a place for fun, sport and leisure. At night they turn into a theater of fear, danger and violation of human rights: the migrants, poorly prepared and poorly equipped, take the paths challenging the darkness, the cold and the controls of the French authorities, risking their lives. Activists on both sides take risk too, in order to help them out. Because nobody saves himself on his own.
