When the weather is mild in the Mediterranean, boats filled with migrants leave the African and Asian coasts to reach Europe, the “promised land”. One summer night a boat, The Bochra, with more than 130 people on board, landed on a beach in Sicily. All of them quickly disappeared into the night. The boat remained, in limbo between the sea and the land…until the tourists arrived.
