If everything goes according to Ashkan Rahmoni’s plan, someday soon the 21-year old Iranian will crawl out of his tent near an abandoned railway track and put on a life jacket.

He will climb across the dunes carrying an inflatable dinghy with dozens of others. They will rush toward the French shores of the English Channel near Dunkirk in the cover of darkness.

If they succeed, the next time they touch land will be in England.
