Val Grande, a 152 square kilometers land close to Switzerland, the largest wilderness zone in Europe, no human trace, no roads, no villages, no street lights. Father Sergio, a Benedictine monk in his 80s, has been living here for 40 years in a lodge, with him is Gianmaria, a mild mannered little man helping with all necessities.
One day, bringing food supplies back from the nearest village, Gianmaria shows up with a boy and a girl, visibly exhausted after the 4 hour walking in the mountains. Strangely, they have not come to see the old monk but a third person who is secretly living there... a doctor. Inspired by true events.
