Early 20th century, Northern Italy. The Ughetto family, living through difficult times, dreams of a better future abroad. The story tells of Luigi Ughetto crossing the Alps to start a new life in France, thus changing the destiny of his beloved family forever. His grandson travels back in time revisiting their history, in an intimate dialogue with his grandmother Cesira.
This story begins with ’I’ and quickly slips into ’we’. Whether we are Polish, Indian or Spanish, the past is in our DNA. I wanted to bear witness to how, at that time, we welcomed all foreigners.
