Sound of Torture

Since Europe closed its borders in 2006, thousands of Eritrean refugees fled their military dictator-ruled country towards Israel. The only way out is across the Sinai desert in Egypt. There, many are kidnapped by Bedouin smugglers and taken to camps where they are tortured and raped as they are forced to call their relatives begging for ransom for their release. We follow Meron Estefanos, an Eritrean journalist-activist living in Sweden. On her radio program she talks to hostages in the camps while recording their pleas for help as well as their family members raising money for their release. We also follow two refugees that made it into Israel in their attempt to save their loved ones lives.
