After a disappointment in love, she decided to travel to Spain to fnd her father, whom she has not seen for a long time, and with whom she has maintained only sporadic contact through the years. She packed her belongings into her small car and headed for Almeria. Upon arrival, she could not fnd her father immediately, and on a hot summer afternoon she got lost between the greenhouses of St. Augustin. Momey, who had been studying informatics in Algeria, was forced to quit his studies due to the severe illness of his mother. He thus had to look for a job to help his family, because their economic reserves were all needed for medical treatments and hospital bills. As there were no suitable jobs available, his father heeded the advice of his own brother – who later turned out to be a human tra fcker – and decided to send Momey along with Momey’s younger brother to Spain, to find success there. For this they have to cross the Mediterranean in a dilapidated boat together with 38 other men coming from Africa. A tragic accident occurs during this crossing. On that afternoon, when Loreta is lost between the greenhouses, Momey who by then heads a group of workers there, fnds her unconscious and helps her to fnd the way out of the labyrinth of plantations under plastic.

to leave behind his bad life and depressions. Te two new friends work voluntarily in jail, and start a passionate singing project together.
