ACROSS THE SAHARA
Nosa is from a very poor background but nurses hope of a better future. He sees leaving Nigeria as one of the ways to that future. Yet, he is resolutely against travelling by land to Europe, a common route for many and Leo’s proposal for surmounting their respective challenges. Leo is Nosa’s best friend and Nosa tries to convince him against embarking on something so perilous. However, events conspire to force him into joining Leo and others on the journey. Thus begins an adventure through one of the hottest and grittiest places on the planet. Of course, for these migrants, overcoming the Sahara is not an end in itself.
ACROSS THE SAHARA is a story of human survival. It’s about Africans and some of the reasons why they embark on this most dangerous of journeys. In a bid to get to Europe, these migrants must take on one of nature’s most inhospitable terrains: the Sahara Desert.
