This film tells the stories of two men who have endured hardship, and whose lives have changed after coming into contact with an organisation called Caritas through its offices in Livorno, Italy.

Liborio lived in the streets for thirteen years before receiving Caritas support and becoming the caretaker of Caritas Livorno premises.

Omar arrived in Italy less than two years ago as an asylum seeker on a boat from Libya to Lampedusa (Sicily). Originally from Chad, he describes what happened to him before and after his journey by sea.

Both men recount the events in their lives that have made them who they are on 12/12/12.


Dario Vannozzi, in charge of the Immigration Programme at Caritas Livorno has given me invaluable access to people and places.

Liborio and Omar have agreed to be interviewed for my film and shared with me their amazing stories.
