When the Water is Safer than the Land As Gaddafi clings to power in
Libya, Farid and his mother Jamila chance their luck on the
hazardous crossing to Sicily. But as they hunker down in a
trafficker's battered old boat, the vastness of the Mediterranean
begins to dawn. Meanwhile, in Sicily, Vito wanders the desolate
beaches recalling his mother's stories of her idyllic childhood in
Libya. She has never forgotten - nor forgiven - the forces that
tore her from her childhood love, a young Arab boy whose fate was
very different from her own. Moving back and forth between the
continents, this deeply moving portrait focuses on two families and
one stretch of water, and in terse, lyrical language, captures
perfectly the dark, uncertain quality of our times.
