In the winter of 2016, a refugee camp in Calais, called "the Jungle", was a growing city of about 12,000 inhabitants. The following spring, the southern section was completely destroyed. The displaced inhabitants move to the northern zone to find shelter. During the following autumn, France prepares the final evacuation. But the jungle is an ever-changing place, a cosmopolitan city, a city of the future: destroyed, it rises again and again from its ashes. Shot with young people caught in the turmoil of wars, police violence, and their attempts to cross the border into England, The Wild Frontier could be a forgotten episode of Homer's Odyssey.
