Through a crowdfunding campaign a group of youngsters buys a vessel, the Iuventa, and in July 2016 starts a search and rescue program in the Mediterranean Sea. After a year of operations (in which more than 14,000 people have been rescued), the ship has now been impounded and confiscated by the Italian authorities in Lampedusa and the NGO is under investigation. The documentary film Iuventa follows the life of the protagonists from the first mission of the boat for more than a year, until their utopic and humanitarian dream clashes with reality.
