The Adventure

Following the lives of three illegal immigrants

Three young men from Ivory Coast has entered Europe illegally crossing the Greek-Turkish border.

They want to continue westward but European Union rules require them to stay in the country where they first set foot in the EU: Greece.

The Adventure is both the name of the documentary and the name used by African migrants setting out on the Journey to Europe.

Fuelled by a hunger to survive and find a better life, anything seems better than the living conditions these immigrants come from.

Filmed over the space of a year, The Adventure follows the protagonists living in Athens, their obsession with leaving, and the need for money and luck.
