Synopsis

Emotional and slightly comic drama. Lorenzo, an astrophysicist, returns from Milan to his childhood home in rural Sicily, hoping to sell the family villa and get out fast. Building work keeps him there longer than expected and he slowly forges a friendship with head repairman Salvatore. Salvatore lives in an alternative therapy community for the mentally ill, where his son Agostino is a patient. Lorenzo learns to see his own life from a new perspective, facing his own past which was plagued by his fathers early death and his moving to North Italy.
