Última parada: Huelva
It's time to harvest the strawberry crop in Huelva. Due to the crisis, an estimated 1,500 un-documented immigrants didn't find work last season. Clotaire, Ibrahim and Adama are three of them. From their shanty town, they watch 300,000 tons of strawberries roll by, to be sold in supermarkets all over Europe. Clotaire, Ibrahim and Adama don't earn any money, they are barely surviving. They are thinking about their next stop. The story of 21st century nomadism.
