With Paul Nkamani

 
Paul Nkamani makes his way from his native Cameroon through the Sahara to the Moroccan coast. Here he meets the filmmaker Jakob Preuss, who is on a research trip along Europe's external borders. Shortly after they get to know each other, Paul is offered one of the coveted places on a dinghy to Europe. He does not suspect the tragic end this will take. On his journey to a "better world" half of his fellow travellers perish. Paul and a few others survive. When Preuss sees the shattering pictures of the rescue on television, he immediately sets off in search of his friend. He eventually finds him in a Spanish Red Cross station. But the economic crisis in Spain forces Paul to move on to Germany. Jakob Preuss now faces a dilemma: should he help Paul find a better life or should he remain true to his role as objective filmmaker?
