The work deals
with the topic of irregular migration over the Mediterranean Sea.
Many boat people hope for a better future for themselves
and their families in “golden Europe”. They flee from
poverty, civil wars or political persecution and embark on the
dangerous journey over the Sea in often unseaworthy
boats. Quite a few of the wooden boats sink or do not reach their
destinations and many of the refugees die on this journey.
