Every year, thousands of African immigrants desperately try to reach the Spanish coasts, embarking on dangerous crossings across the Mediterranean. Tariq, a young Moroccan, works for one of the mafias that organizes these illegal crossings. His job is to ferry passengers across the Strait of Gibraltar without being caught. But each crossing may be his last.
