A very realistic and sad story, 26 February 2004
Author: jesper-37 from Denmark

Every year thousands of Africans try to cross from Africa to Europe via the Gibraltar Strait. In Frontieres we follow a group just leaving from Senegal on their way through Sahara to Tangier, and finally across the Strait, and some don't make it.

We get to know their stories, reasons, and we learn of their rough trip.

It's a very realistic, sad and movie story, that makes one ask the obvious question: "Who is to blame?"

However, a follow up of how their lives in Europe turn out, for is it worth risking your life in the first place?

The story also has a touch of humour.
