ITALY, 80’

Gardone, a small town surrounded by mountains in northern Italy. After his 25th birthday, the young Sokuro is back in Italy after spending a month in Burkina. During this stay, he married a young girl from his native village, reconnecting with the land of his ancestors. While waiting for his wife to join him in Italy, Sokuro goes back to the family routine of the small apartment where he lives with his brother Nassir and his sister Falira, aged 9 and 20 years. Like them, Sokuro lives as a foreigner on a land that has seen him grow up.
