«Legal and Irregular Migration: the Melilla Migrants, or the Aborted Dream». Each year, hundreds of migrants from the Maghreb flock to the Spanish enclave of Melilla on the Moroccan coast. Most of them will go no further. Although they are convinced that Spain is within reach, the European dream of these young men generally stops here. This thirteen-minute video report will shed light on the lives of these young men while they are in Melilla.
