This the synopsis of Open Arms – The law of the sea: Autumn 2015. Two Spanish lifeguards, Òscar and Gerard, struck by the heartbreaking photograph of a child drowned in the Mediterranean, go to the island of Lesbos, where they discover a shocking reality: every day thousands of people risk their lives trying to sail the sea with precarious boats, to escape from the misery and wars that afflict their countries of origin. But the most disconcerting thing is that no one is carrying out rescue activities. Together with Esther, Nico and the other members of their team, Òscar and Gerard will fight to do the work the authorities neglect and to bring the help they badly need to thousands of people. From the true story of Òscar Camps, the founder of Open Arms.
