Synopsis: In northern Morocco lies the Spanish enclave of Melilla: Europe on African Land. On the mountain above live over a thousand hopeful African migrants, watching the fence separating Morocco and Spain. Abou from Mali is one of them – he is in front of the camera, as well as behind it. For over a year, he has ceaselessly attempted to jump the fence.
