Every day legions of people risk their lives in the Mediterranean Sea to reach the southern coasts of Europe, the new Promised Land. But the sea, that once parted to allow Moses' passage, now closes with indifference over the stories and lives of countless victims. An old man slowly walks along a deserted beach, gathering what he finds in the sand: objects carried by the sea, the last possessions of women, men, children who have disappeared during their long journey to the Promised Land. A daily reality that bears upon all of us.
