Fata and Yankuba are two young Gambian migrants with distinct and ambitious dreams, who fled dictatorship and poverty, and landed in Naples only to discover a new kind of violence: a pernicious climate of racism and a corrupt immigration system. Their only solace escape from the psychological torture of years spent waiting for documents in squalid camps is a small underground club in the heart of the city. As divisive anti-immigration rhetoric ricochets through the media, migrant-run Teranga nightclub manifests as a rare safe space for migrants to meet young Italians whilst dancing and singing away the collective trauma of their journeys to Europe and the discrimination they face in Italy.
