Humanity on Trial

When the refugee crisis hits Europe a young Dane, Salam Aldeen, travels to Greece to volunteer rescuing refugees from the Aegean Sea. One night, while trying to find a family lost at sea, Salam is arrested and charged with human smuggling. If he is convicted, he might spend the rest of his life behind bars in prison. In Greece, where democratic values were born, Salam’s case sets the future of Europe’s humanity: is saving lives a crime?
