Alice has to decide: First there is her academic career with the prospect of becoming a philosophy professor in Germany. On the other hand, Alice has fought for years for the rights of refugees in Sicily, where she was born. One of them is Pacience. The young christian woman from Nigeria was pregnant when she fled from Libya to Lampedusa. Since then, she’s been awaiting a positive decision on her asylum application. Both women are nearing a turning point in their lives. But while Alice is able to choose freely, the future of Pacience is in the hands of Italian authorities.
