Mahmoud, a Senegalese youth man who arrived in Europe in 2005 after jumping over the fence of Ceuta, investigates the death of Samba, a fellow citizen who disappeared while a group of which he was part tried to swim across the border of Ceuta and the Guardia Civil made use of anti-riot material to avoid it.

In this search, Mahmoud will make the opposite way to the one he made in his migratory adventure. During his route he reconstructs what happened and we can put a face to Samba, one of the people who died on February 6, 2014 at El Tarajal beach.
