“The Adventure” is the name used by African migrants setting out on the Journey to Europe. Three young men from Ivory Coast entered Europe illegally crossing the Greek-Turkish border. They want to continue westward but European Union rules require them to stay in the country where they first set foot in the EU: Greece.

Filmed over the space of a year, “The Adventure” follows the protagonists living in Athens, their obsession with leaving, and the need for money and luck.
