Since the mid- 1990's, more than 20,000 migrants died in the Mediterranean in their attempt to reach Europe. Boats went adrift and sank under the eyes of coast guard ships, surveillance patrols of Frontex and sometimes military buildings. In July 2012, a Euro-African activist coalition called Boats 4 People chartered a boat for a solidarity action in order to monitor the border and denounce those responsible for this situation. Activists, lawyers and journalists were on board to sail the migration route the opposite way it is usually crossed by boat-people. This film shares the extraordinary action taken by activists from Africa and Europe - raising awareness, mobilizing public opinion and continuing the struggle for the rights of boat-people.
