Sea You Around

By Guus Bakker


Two types of travelers arrive on the small Greek island of Kos. Both are fleeing their countries, but for opposite reasons. The refugees, the unwanted migrants known for causing the «migrant crisis”. And the holidaymakers, following the routes of mass tourism. There’s no escaping each other, being on a small island together. And all the while, a third group looks on and only hopes that it all goes back to normal again.
