Deshantori‘Deshantori’ (meaning “The Migrant”) is a Bangladeshi film which brings to life the circumstances in developing nations that forces young people towards illegal migration. It develops around the re-construction of a shockingly painful journey of 26 young Bangladeshis who tried to migrate to Spain illegally through the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea (in which they were forced to resort to cannibalism to stay alive).
