Catalonia, summer 2010. The countryside along Segre river is full of illegal encampments with hundreds of immigrants, mainly African, who came looking for a job in the harvests. Because of the global crisis and the bad season only few of them are able to find a job, not even for few days. The summer is going on surviving on a hard and long apathy...

This documentary is the hipothetical diary of Yankuba, one of them. Trough his words and thoughts, as a letter delivered to all the Africans and to all the Europeans, he’ll give a resume of the situation of many people who decided to cross the board between two worlds.
