A polyphony of voices, a mingling of emotions: the theme of the smuggling of asylum-seekers is explored through first-hand accounts by survivors and rescuers and those of humanitarian workers and human rights specialists. While the necessity of the opening of legal migration channels in order to prevent the trafficking of human beings emerges, the documentary also stresses the importance of youth involvement in the current humanitarian crisis.
