Two teenage boys leave their home in Dakar for a terrifying epic journey to Europe. Seydou dreams of becoming a world-famous rapper, and he and his cousin Moussa (non-professional actors, like much of the cast) work covertly to raise money for their trip. Against Seydou’s mother’s wishes, the pair set off from Senegal to encounter unfathomable hardships, from wild, inhospitable environments to savage human injustice. Gathering testimony from migrants to Italy as a starting point, director Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah,Dogman) has constructed an awe-inspiring contemporary odyssey through the dangers of the desert,the perils of the sea and the testing of the human soul.
