Adesolate northern Italian town set beneath majestic mountains. Scattered houses built along a highway, in the midst of enormous lumber yards, shopping centres and neon. Rino and Cristiano Zena, father and son, live here. Rino makes do with odd jobs. Cristiano is in middle school. It is the two of them against the world. Rino raises his son the best he can.
