In the library of Bologna’s prison, a group of Muslim prisoners participates in a course organized by teachers and volunteers about the Italian Constitution. A young Arab waiting for his sentence to be up is grappling with “the winters and springs” of freedom and a future to rewrite. A journey inside and outside the prison, to recount the illusions and hopes of those who have dreamed and continue to dream of a “fairer world.”
