Antonio and Pietro, a man and his child, alone in Milan to fight against illness. Pietro has a brain cancer, to move from South to North Italy seems to be a chance, maybe salvation. Jaber, fifteen years old, lives in Milan with a group of fellow countrymen. He’s just arrived in Europe, with other immigrants escaping from North Africa, and from the clashes born with Arab Spring. The hospital, a city within a city, where everyone is forced to remain: Antonio to heal Pietro, Jaber to assist Youssef, his best friend. The disease is the pretext for a meeting between Antonio and Jaber, two scared and lonely souls.
