The challenge: The canoe traces the odyssey of daily illegal immigration through the eyes of the captain of a fishing boat and living in Dakar responsible for transporting thirty men to Spain. Thirty men, most of whom have never even seen the sea and no idea what to expect on arrival on the European continent.(mubi)
