‘Scourge of Hope’ follows two best friends who take on the clandestine, most often murderous journey across Sub-Saharan Africa, through to the Sahel and across the great Saharan desert, seeking to cross the Mediterranean into Europe; the land where all is green.
Treacherous roads plagued by all brands of banditry, the merciless desert, its minions and scorching heat. Confronting warlords and slavers in the war-torn state of Libya to get to the sea… It sure is no cake walk.
It is a story of true camaraderie, loss and sacrifice. Finding love and courage in the face of hardship, slavery and utter brutality, by known forces and those that lurk in the shadows, pulling on strings.
Riveting, visceral and heart-wrenching, it is a story inspired by true events.
