Filmed between La Jonquera and Le Boulou, Spanish director Pablo Guirado tells the story of truck driver Mario who transports illegal immigrants from southern Spain across the border into France, aboard his refrigerated truck
The film deals above all with the human aspect – the distress of both migrants and prostitutes in and around La Jonquera.
Lorry drivers are trapped in the town because of a farmers’ strike blocking the roads. We follow their interaction with each other as well as their relationships with both prostitutes offering sex to the drivers, and the migrants in the truck
Reflecting our modern times, ‘gilets jaunes’, present during the filming, hang around in the background.
