But Now Is Perfect

But Now Is Perfect

"I do not know if I'm taking the right steps," says Becky Moses, but she is grateful for every moment of being alive. God, or fate, has brought her to Europe via Libya from her native country Nigeria, on the run for an arranged marriage with an elderly man. Never would she have thought she would end up in Riace, a mountain village in Calabria (southern Italy) that has become world famous by its open-door policy for immigrants by the flamboyant mayor Domenico Lucano. Through the eyes of Becky and her fellow villagers, we witness how the shrunken Italian community lives together with the new, mostly African, inhabitants. We see how friendships are formed and lives become connected. But fate remains unpredictable. The regional authorities are not always happy with the Riace project, the mayor gets into a political storm and cannot protect 'his' people any more. Becky must leave the village and ends up in an illegal immigrant camp. When she meets her fatal end there, the inhabitants of Riace are left in grief and bewilderment. A poignant story of faith, hope and documents.
