They decide to help them (hoping they won’t be arrested for human trafficking) by organising a pretend wedding. Accompanied by a young Palestinian women dressed as a bride and around a dozen Italian and Syrian friends as the wedding guests, the make their way across half of Europe on a journey of four days and 3,000 kilometres.
