This the story of Ali (his Italian name): one of the thousand Bengali immigrant workers in Italy. As all of them he came in Italy, looking for a job, after an expensive, long and tiring jourey through Asia and Europe. As he was an illegal immigrant he did illegal works for years until he found a honest manager who gave him a regular contract. Because of that he got married whit his cousin in Bangladesh two years ago.
