Esino Lario is a small border village in the Alps, between Italy and Switzerland. It is a quiet and isolated place; the only foreign presence is a group of refugees waiting for asylum and hosted in an old hotel.
In 2016 the village held an international event about web and digital culture: the annual world meeting of Wikipedia volunteers. Over a span of several months, the film tracks the preparations ahead of the event. The commitment of some, the indifference or open hostility of others, unveil a society that is caught between contemporariness and tradition, openness and rejection. The tempting promises the film refers to are the trigger which forces this small world to change.
