The true story of Adil, a boy who grew up in the Moroccan countryside and at 13 joined his father who had emigrated to Italy. Adil has to cope with the harsh experience of migration, but also with experiences that will change his life forever. He discovers a passion for cinema and photography, the premise of this autobiographical feature film made with non-professional actors in rural Morocco and Milan, dealing with the subjects of migration and cultural identity from a new perspective: that of children and youngsters.
