African migrant workers follow the seasons through Southern Italy, harvesting oranges, tomatoes and olives. They are paid little and live in substandard conditions. The film shows life in an experimental camp set up by a local municipality in Western Sicily. Despite all best intentions, the camp is still very inadequate.

Live Q&As with the directors will take place on Zoom 19-28 March. Find the full schedule of live events and links to join here.
