But while many people spend their holidays in places like Ibiza, Agata usually goes to Saharan Algeria with her mother, Misi, to help out a refugee family from Western Morocco. This annual 'holiday' has Agata and Misi living in harsh conditions while they help to support a family that has long been accustomed to life in the Sahara Desert. Agata's family helps out further by paying to have a daughter from the refugee family come once a year to visit them in Cambrils. Over the years, they have become close friends.

Meanwhile, both Agata and Misi feel that what they do for the family in the Algerian desert is little more than a patchup job that does nothing to solve the problem. But any act to alleviate suffering is the right act, and would that more people had the compassion and sense of social justice this family has.
