Romanian adolescent Luminita is an undocumented immigrant living in Italy on the fringes of a shantytown. The girl has a plan for escape her difficult situation and turns to Antonio, a sick, elderly and dying man, to help her carry it out. Their initial clash will lead to unexpected consequences.

[...] It is a cinema of gestures, gazes, more of silence than words.”
Giancarlo Zappoli,
