This is a searing tale of two Senegalese teenagers’ migration from Africa to Europe. It is an odyssey traversing city, desert and ocean from West Africa to the Mediterranean Sea. On a journey neither of the boys could have anticipated, they experience the dangers and the beauty of the desert, the shock of detention centres in Libya and the perils of the seas in their pursuit of a better life. Highly emotional and honestly felt, this is a story of epic scale, but one which does not lose sight of the individual human stakes of the migrant crisis and the intensity of the suffering it propagates.

Io Capitano has been nominated for many awards.
