Synopsis

Baye Laye is the captain of a Senegalese fishing pirogue who dreams of a new place where he could earn a better living for his family. So when he is offered the opportunity, he accepts the job of leading one of the pirogues going to Europe in spite of the dangers that he knows will be involved. The thirty men who make up his crew speak different languages and some have never even seen the sea, but Baye Laye takes on the challenge of guiding them to their distant destination of the Europe coast.
