    • Synopsis
    • Aysel and Yasser, two North African immigrants,have just landed illegally on the shores of Italy and are in a hurry to make their way to other European destinations. But the day after their landing, there are more emergencies due to illegal disembarkations and every movement is fraught with difficulty - the police in fact control the roads and the railway stations. There is a great risk of their being caught and repatriated.
      Aysel and Yasser do not have anything in common ; they don't even know each other. Nonetheless, fate has not only decided to bring them together as soon as they land in Italy, but has also placed them in the situation of having to pretend to be husband and wife in rhe eyes of the "Evangelists", three musicians in their forties who have decided to help them to cross the borders of Italy. In fact, the musicians are mistakenly convinced that these two immigrants are a married couple in great difficulty who have the further burden of expecting a baby.
      And so, in a mix of drama and comedy,adventure friendship and love will warm the hearts and bring the souls of these characters together - these persons who are apparently so distant and yet so close to each other. These protagonists who have placed their very existences on standby to follow a dream, will manage to rediscover themselves and to savour a taste of life .
