But things will not work out as he had planned, and during these strange sentimental twists, the two of them will find themselves in Iraq, right at the begininng of the conflict.
There, Attilio who deos not speak a word of Arabic, will find himself forced to fight his own personal battle against the hell of destruction, armed only with his poetry...
