Additional Information

The modern Robinson is a doctor and his solitude is voluntary on an island invaded by migrants, NGOs and guards. He saves Friday, a castaway, the only survivor of his illegal refugee boat. During his journey on the island, Robinson encounters extraordinary beings and events. He will confront current affairs through visual poetry and symbolism in a world where everybody looks for its own paradise. Friday is the Refugee, the only one from his boat to have survived, when sailing from Africa to Italy. First, he becomes Robinsonʼs friend. Tempted by the Mermaid to be free, he is taking the sea and becomes the king of the floating people in search of a place to live. Later on, Mary - Robinsonʼs mother – helps him recover his identity – his real name is Amadou. He is innocently trying to find a place in the world for himself and also for the people with no solution for surviving in their homeland.
