The harsh reality of many immigrants who risk their lives to seek a better future, far from war and famine.

We are used to seeing in the news scenes of immigrants on fragile boats, often with a tragic ending, abandoned to their fate.

People seem to be just numbers, annoying figures when it comes to helping or welcoming them in Europe.

The video features very harsh symbology, metaphorically they pull the chain and wash their hands.

Then everything returns to calm, as if nothing had happened, without a trace of it, and falling into total oblivion.
