Younis, the protagonist of From Rome to Rome, has modest dreams. Like any young man, he wants to “make money, get married and settle down”. Except like many others, he cannot find employment opportunities at home. He sells out the family buffalo and his mother’s gold to pay for a trip that would take him from the heart of the Delta to the land where, with hard work, his dreams would come true.

From Rome to Rome is a 16 minute’ animation based on the real life stories of young men who attempted the illegal perilous crossing of the Mediterranean to Lampedusa, the Southernmost part of Italy via Libya in search of a better future.
