What are the remains of a revolution in the people who experienced it?
From February to April 2011, 23 thousand Tunisians reached the tiny island of Lampedusa, Italy.
The Italian Government called this event an invasion, a barbaric horde, a biblical exodus, a humanitarian tsunami. But nobody spoke about the stories of these young people.
From the refugee camps of Manduria, Mineo and Palazzo San Gervasio (Southern Italy), five of these young people tell us about the constriction of their whole life under the regime of Ben Ali and about the unexpexcted and groundbreaking revolution that made the President flee. Then the possibility to leave, -: for someone a long-lasting dream, for others just a sudden decision.
Those are the best years: the ones of a generation that lived without freedom for too long that now has decided to take it all
