THE FATHER AND THE FOREIGNER
IL PADRE E LO STRANIERO
Diego, employee at the Ministry of Justice, has a severely disabled son. In the rehabilitation centre where he brings his son, Diego meets the Arab Walid and the two become friends, bonded through their shared grief and the love for their sons.
The friendship is strong yet mysterious at the same time, as mysterious is Walid, always travelling in luxury cars and never revealing anything about his life outside of what he shares with Diego because of their sons.
Diego on the other hand begins to discover a different world through Walid, which gives him a better understanding of himself and helps him get away from the malaise of his ‘regular’ life.
When Walid disappears, and the secret services come into the scene, Diego begins a dangerous journey in a city that becomes sinister and criminal, all in order to find the father and son that have become so essential and precious to him.
