Running Time 55’

A city in Italy. A penniless radio speaker becomes friends with Abdul, the Egyptian who sells kebabs in his shop full of postcards from Egypt. The relationship between the two never really deepens, and only when Abdul disappears, his story emerges, dramatically linked to that of his country, politically and economically so far from the one he emigrated to. The audience faces many possible versions of the story. Where’s the truth?
