24 min.DK/Documentary

Alvin is snorkling with his father on Samos. But what is that? Alvin finds a lifevest, and other things left behind by the refugees. It's a bit spooky...
Why did the refugees arrive in rubber boats? Why didn't they fly here like us? Alvin wants to find the refugee children, to give them some candy and a stuffed animal he got on the plane. He believes that the refugees need safety and food – but more than anything else, they probably need a hug. They drive up to the refugee camp. The gates are open and Alvin meets the children. But just as he tries to give them the candy, the police come and throw him out.
