The small Calabrian village of Sant'Anna is "invaded" by the "Nìguri" (Blacks in Calabrian dialect). There is a center that is one of the greatest place of reception of immingrants of Europe, that reflects what happens in Italy: fear of the differences, distrust and the doubt of how to welcome the clandestine immigrants that reach our coasts. The people of Calabria, historically defined emigrant, accept unwillingly the cohabitation with the new arrivals, that attend for a long time, and often in vain, a document to be able to live in Italy and that they will very probably live in places like Rosarno, working as slaves.
