Episode

A vast transit zone, now home to refugee holding camps, the island has seen a rise in extremism.

Refugees are no longer allowed to leave the island. The locals continue to help them generously, as they did throughout 2015, but social cohesion is increasingly hard to maintain.
The extreme right is trying to exploit the inevitable tensions arising from this forced cohabitation. The local authorities are ill-equipped to deal with hostilities, and look on powerless at the inexorable rise of xenophobia among a part of the population.
