In this short-film commissioned for Danish national TV the viewer is taken on a trip on the river Meriç, which defines the border between Turkey and Greece. Every year thousands of migrants try to cross the river, and every year many drown in their attempt at entering Europe. The film is narrated by the Turkish fisherman Harim who has often seen migrants in peril. Harim feels in a moral dilemma because the current laws forbid him to help the migrants in any way.
