After living in Italy for almost ten years without documents, three Egyptian men - Ali, Mahmoud and Mohamed - are suddenly awarded legal residence. As a whole new world of opportunities open up to them, they revisit the ports where they arrived in Italy as teenagers after hazardous journeys across the Mediterranean. Here, difficult memories are intertwined with fantasies about what could be, or could have been, and their possible new lives. Through creative collaborative filmmaking that waves animation, theatre and storytelling with documentary images, we are able delve deep into the memories and imaginations of these young men.

Director Alexandra D'onofrio will attend the screening and take part in a Q&A.
