BAB SEBTA means in Arabic the door of Ceuta and it is the narrow passage in the frontier between Morocco and Ceuta. It is the last obstacle that faces those who came from all over Africa to arrive to Europe. BAB SEBTA visits four cities, looking for the rituals of the awaiting and the voices of those travelers.
