Those Who Feel The Fire Burning
As a group of refugees tries to enter Europe illegally by boat, a storm suddenly appears and an old man falls overboard. His perception shifts into another dimension: a dark, hallucinatory place. Driven by a mysterious power, and desperately in search of his loved ones, his soul passes by the everyday reality experienced by many castaway refugees at the border of Europe, the alleged paradise.
