Many immigrants arrived on the Greek islands, as well as in Italy. De Bernardi also filmed the border town Ventimiglia, where refugees play football and queue up for aid in a parking lot. But the focus of this documentary is on the Greek coastal resort Amarynthos, which looks out on Boeotia, where the ancient port of Aulis once lay. This was the setting for Euripides' Iphigenia in Aulis , the tragedy in which King Agamemnon demonstrates his willingness to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia. De Bernardi uses locals as the 'dramatis personae' — protagonists such as Iphigenia, Clytemnestra, Agamemnon and Achilles, and has them read excerpts from the play. Fragments which, like a Greek chorus, comment on the status of refugees in Europe.

Ancient scholars thought that Euripides had written ninety-five plays, although four of those were probably written by Critias.
Eighteen of Euripides' plays have survived complete. It is now widely believed that what was thought to be a nineteenth, Rhesus, was probably not by Euripides.
Fragments, some substantial, of most of the other plays also survive. More of his plays have survived than those of Aeschylus and Sophocles together, partly because of the chance preservation of a manuscript that was probably part of a complete collection of his works in alphabetical order.

The story concerns the legendary sacrifice of Iphigenia by her father, Agamemnon. When the Greek fleet is becalmed at Aulis, thus preventing movement of the expeditionary force against Troy, Agamemnon is told that he must sacrifice Iphigenia to appease the goddess Artemis , who has caused the unfavourable weather. Agamemnon lures his daughter to Aulis by pretending that she will marry Achilles. Once she learns the truth, Iphigenia begs for her life, but eventually she goes willingly to her death.
