"Clamimi par non" (Call me by my name) is a hypothetical dialogue between Zohra, a 14-year-old Pakistani girl who secretly escaped by disguising herself as a man in order to travel the so-called "Game" (the journey through the Balkan route) and arrive in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and one of her passeurs, the human traffickers. Feeling robbed of any form of her identity, she begs the trafficker to never look her in the eye, the only place within which her identity remains intact and real, and God to remind her mother that she has never lost the strength she trasmitted on to her, despite all that she has been deprived of.
