Why were they hiding on the plane?

The documentary by filmmaker Richard Bentley tells the story of the two men.

But why did they take such extraordinary measures and go on the brutal, extreme journey?

Thomas says he met Carlito at a nightclub in Johannesburg, South Africa, and planned a new life in the UK.

“My background was very tough,” says Themba.

“I was raised by my cousin who adopted me as a child.

“Everything was normal until she died. I went to school but had to drop out because I couldn’t pay the fees. “

What happened to the two men?

Unfortunately, Carlito died.

His body was discovered in an air conditioner in Richmond, South West London.

Thomas, now 30, who lives in Liverpool as Justin, has survived remarkably.
