Imagine one of your loved ones, someone you live with, to be suddenly taken away by the police, imprisoned far from home with the risk of being expelled from Italy forever, not because of any criminal act, but merely because of a lack of proper papers. A concrete risk for the families of many immigrants, even when socially integrated. That's the experience of Alejandro, Bouchaib, Karim and Peter, all locked up in some Centres for Identification and Expulsion in Turin, Rome and Trapani, while their families remain suspended in a limbo: waiting to see if their loved ones will ever return home.
