Nur came from Syria to escape the war that destroyed his house and killed his father. His only friend is Safi, his dog. Tau left Congo in search of a cure for his mother, but his hopes were dashed and now he sees her slowly dying, overwhelmed by the disease and the pain of her loss. Both children find themselves in the hellish circle of Samos refugee camp, at the edge of Europe and forgotten by everyone. When Tau decides to befriend Safi, hoping that his mother's condition will improve thanks to the animal's company, the two boys collide, encouraged by the prejudices that each community in the camp has against the others. It will be only through Popi, the daughter of the Camp Manger, that their lives will come together and the two will find common ground on which to build a future.
On the background of this delicate tale, the extremely harsh psychological and material conditions of the children and adolescents in Samos emerge. They are made even more explicit and touching by the photographs gathered in the second part of this book. The result of the photography workshops in "Mazí", by Nicoletta Novara, are accompanied by writings from the children themselves. They portray authentic, sincere and ruthless - but not hopeless – insight on one of the greatest tragedies of contemporary Europe.
