Dumped in the desert

Dumped in the desert could be read as the concept behind a reality show.

Imagine you are driven from your home by the utter lack of prospects and the poverty to undertake the long, perilous, dangerously expensive journey towards the freedom and finance of fortress Europe.

At its outermost perimeter, still in Africa, you must force your way over the fence. When you don't make it the production dumps you in the desert, without food or water.

Imagine this is television. Then try imagining it is not.
