A few years after landing in Lampedusa in 2006, Dagmawi Yimer returns with a videocamera and a regular identity card to see and film what he could then only imagine as he looked through the gratings on the windows of the detention centre. Shot between 2010 and the beginning of 2011, the film is a tribute to the island and its inhabitants.
