Under Paris' glittering Eiffel Tower, illegal Senegalese migrants sell miniature souvenirs of the monument to support their families back home. Far from their loved ones and hounded by the police, each day is a struggle through darkness in the City of Lights.

“In a beautiful and somber act of simply looking and listening, we hear from those who face the life threatening indictment of adding to "the migrant crisis." Without ever directly revealing those sharing the intimate details of the sheer difficulty, constant fear and immense responsibility of trying to earn a living without citizenship, Tal Amiran subtly reconsiders dominant narratives, encouraging us to take a new, compassionate perspective.”
