In this short documentary we see the young Mustafa Balde, who traveled from Senegal to Europe. Mustafa left Senegal in 2016. First he went to Libya and a year later he made the crossing to Sicily. Once arrived, Mustafa was designated a smuggler by the skipper, when he was only 15 years old. He was detained for 49 days. When he got out of prison, it became clear that Mustafa was good at sewing, as he did in Senegal. The local shelter 'Raggio di Sole' arranged an internship at a small sewing workshop.
