Synopsis

Antonio is alone in Milan with his seriously-ill baby boy, Pietro. They have travelled north in desperate hope of finding a cure. Jaber, 15, lives in Milan with a group of countrymen. He has recently migrated to Europe, escaping North Africa and the riots of the Arab Spring. Both men unwittingly find themselves in the same town, at a hospital where Antonio has brought Pietro for therapy and Jaber his friend Youssef. Disease brings about the meeting of two lonely and frightened souls, two «foreign bodies» dealing with pain.
