Whilst trying to reach Europe, a small boy and his older sister are crouched in an airport, waiting to be able to enter the holds of an airplane and escape from the continent. Meanwhile, an environmental activist tries to fight against the poaching of animals, whilst in her personal life she's struggling with her daughter's problems.
