A nonsense journey, searching for emptiness - from the Byzantine iconoclastic fury - (in history and geography of the characters), a wandering and a cyclical return to scenes and images as the pieces get lost in the Otranto mosaic trampled.
C, a young man of the Salento bored by his everyday life, shares the boredom with two friends: S, trumpeter of the city music band, and R, a former gas station attendant who runs his life listlessly. Among the ruins, architectural relics and private places, C dreams of destruction: his, however, is a visionary pyromania and impotent, only imagined from his mind and painted in his eyes ... Meanwhile, three immigrants lands on the shores of the Adriatic sea and cross places abandoned by history...
