Filming in her grandparents’ home near Padova in Italy, the director identifies a map of places belonging to their past. Antonio was born in Libya when it was an Italian colony, and he lived in Tripoli where he married Narcisa. They were suddenly forced to leave the country in 1970 just after Gaddafi’s coup. With the help of a young Libyan contacted on social media, Martina collects images of her grandparents’ “hometown” today. As they exchange pictures and chats, their relationship grows, the web allowing them to slowly overcome the physical and cultural boundaries that separate their lives, bringing the audience into a world the media has no access to.
