The piece tells the stories of men and women fleeing oppressive regimes or war-torn countries. It narrates, through dance and sound track testimonies, their devastating travels, their frustrated dreams, their hopes and their wrecked dramas. Immigrants are too often considered invaders, they are disenfranchised and marginalised. The moral imperative to ensure decent living conditions for all human beings should never be sacrificed on the altar of greedy political and economic interests.
