Not too far away, an environmental activist contemplates the terrible image of an elephant, dead and fangless. Not only does he have to fight against poaching, but he will have to confront the problems of his newly arrived daughter from Spain. Thousands of kilometers to the north, in Melilla, a group of Guardias Civiles prepare to face the furious crowd of sub-Saharan people who have begun the assault on the fence.
