«On the Road to Zinder». Thousands of undocumented Sub-Saharan migrants have been repatriated to their home countries. Among them are a group of women and a 15-year-old who lived in Maghnia, the informal Wadi Jordi ghetto on the border

between Algeria and Morocco. Chahreddine Beriah aims to take the same journey of these repatriated migrants and cross the border to meet with his friends at the wadi in Zinder, Niger.
