A soldier's heart
On March 26, 2010, Corporal Todd Nicely, 26, is in charge of a patrol of twelve Marines in Helmand, in Afghanistan. Suddenly he hears the creepy sound of the activation mechanism of a pressure plate of a IED (improvised explosive device). This simple click will mark his life forever.

Andho, a brighter future.
In Nepali language, "andho" indicates a blind person. In Kathmandu, the capital, andho people sing in clubs and play cricket, give massages to mountaineers and run libraries with braille books.

The endless war
This specific war is nothing more than the backwash of the dramatic conflict that hit the country from 1983 to 2005 and caused almost two million victims, with government troops on one side and the Sudan People's Liberation Army on the other. A clash which intensified after the coup of Omar al-Bashir in '89, and ended with a peace agreement that led to the referendum on 9 July 2011, the Independe

Mare Nostrum
Lampedusa. Italy's southernmost point. An island barely larger than its airport, lost in the middle of the Mediterranean 120 miles north of the Libyan coast. A dream. Every year, thousands of desperate migrants set sail from the Northern African shores on board overloaded and precarious boats, and attempt to cross over to this tiny island which, in their eyes, represents Europe and the chance for
