There are more and more Nigerians fleeing to Indonesia, why is this the case?
Though the local media may have portrayed them more as online scammers and drug dealers, the reality is most of them are just trying to find a better life outside Nigeria doing ordinary jobs. The situation in Nigeria has pushed many youths to emigrate, or attempted to emigrate, abroad.

We follow the story of one Nigerian man who hoped to find a better life in Indonesia. Now held in a detention center in West Jakarta, he shares his memories of Lagos, the reality of being a foreign worker in Indonesia and the hope of good things to come--however uncertain it may seem.
