). Written by the director, the story revolves around 14-year-old Fortuna, a young Ethiopian girl who has had no news of her parents since arriving in Lampedusa, Italy. Together with other refugees, she is given shelter for the winter in a Swiss Catholic hospice at an altitude of over 2,000 metres. While they wait for their fate to be decided by the Swiss authorities, Fortuna meets Kabir, a 26-year-old African refugee, and falls desperately in love.
