From Africa, Abou watches the fence and imagines a future in Europe ahead of him. For over a year, he and thousands of other migrants have attempted to jump the enormous fence system that separates Morocco from a tiny land spit of Spain. Beyond this enclave Melilla spreads the Mediterranean towards Spanish mainland. Behind the camera, Abou portrays the struggle for dignity and freedom on the militarized frontier.
