A son and a father. A boy who, despite himself, decides to grow up quickly, and take his place, to defend his sister. A childhood lived free and impetuous. A man forced to emigrate to provide some well-being to his family. A love lived far from one’s own country, with a secret to hide. The community of Albanians in Italy, with their language and their traditions. A southern town, immersed in wild nature, between the mountains and the sea, where you can grow up in the wonder of a land with a strong character, full of flavors, yearning and anger. Finally, suddenly, a shot to put the chaos back in order.”
