On a small, isolated island between Sicily and Africa, a film crew lands to shoot a large-scale feature film (Terraferma by Emanuele Crialese). The filmmaker and his entourage settle on the island providing employment to the locals but disrupting their bucolic daily rhythm
The islanders have first-hand personal experience with African migrants as they deal with weekly landings of refugees from Tunisia and Libya.
A large group of Africans are brought to the island from Sicily to work as background on the film. The job requires that they get into the water and interpret the part of refugees arriving by rickety boat, something most of them have actually experienced.
