Inside an old building in the suburbs of Rome, an elementary-school teacher leads a silent existence with great dignity. One morning he prepares to go to work, and does so by going through the routine he is familiar with. A sort of ritual that marks the rhythm of his daily life. The school is a place where he is recognized, but also the place where he has spent much of his life and which he feels strongly a part of.
