TWO AT THE BORDER

Two young men, a Syrian and a Palestinian, secretly smuggle refugees into Europe. Based in the Turkish city of Edirne, they help illegal immigrants move across to Greece. Although the Turkish side of the border is porous, EU support means the Greek side is better controlled: heat-seeking cameras, fences, coastguard vessels. The young people group together, move – sometimes they succeed, sometimes they don’t.
