Effatà Road tells about the migration in an unusual way.
In the first part, four migrants slowly cross the Sicilian landscapes, the ?border? where the beauty mixes itself with life’s hardness. Together with four famous personalities, between embarrassments and insight, they unfold each other, exchanging stories, memories and perspectives.
In the second part we’ll listen the father of a victim of the shipwreck of 3 October 2013. And we will witness a double commemoration in Lampedusa and in Castellammare del Golfo near the cemetery where many of the victims of this insane massacre rest.
