Director: Boris Lojkine
Producer: France

A young man from Cameroon and a Nigerian woman find themselves in the harsh landscape of the Sahara desert along with hundreds of others making the desperate and dangerous journey across Northern Africa. Although their journeys are the same, the gangs, culture, racism and nationalistic structures that have been emplaced along this well-worn migratory path, means that the safety of both man and woman requires staying with one's own people. However, these two try to find their way together and to love each other—telling what is both an incredibly beautiful and ugly story, Hope vigorously portrays the very much current and heartbreaking issue of African migrants in search of something better in Europe.
