In a desperate attempt to reach Europe and crouching before an airstrip in Cameroon, a six-year-old boy and his older sister wait to sneak into the holds of an airplane. Not too far away, an environmental activist contemplates the terrible image of an elephant, dead and without fangs. Not only does he have to fight against poaching, but he will also have to rediscover the problems of his daughter recently arrived from Spain. Thousands of kilometers to the north, in Melilla, a group of civil guards is preparing to face the furious crowd of sub-Saharan Africans who have started the assault on the fence. Three stories united by a central theme, in which none of its protagonists knows that their destinies are condemned to cross paths and that their lives will no longer be the same.
