Neculai, Aurel and Raj all left their homes in Romania for the same reason: to seek better lives for their families. Now, in Britain, with their loved ones depending on them, they survive by creating sand sculptures on London’s streets. They try to find hope in the hardships they endure, while thoughts of their children’s futures keep them going.
