“I want my island back” says Lorenza from the Seychelles

to contact Filao Films :

They had one dream: go back to their Indian Ocean islands. Forty years after they were secretly deported by the British and the American governments, this dream comes true. But since the main island Diego Garcia has become one of the biggest American military base outside the USA, they are only entitled to one day-visit per island. During their journey another voyage comes back to the surface. We are in 1973 when suddenly, in each house, soldiers come into sight.
