Vista Mare

Italy 2020. The region of Puglia has become a militarized frontier, a line not to be crossed and collapsing because of the thousands of Italians who have invaded it in a few months. The Italian state is now adrift. Popular uprisings and demonstrations follow one another because of an increasingly suffocating economic crisis. Having served three years in prison for aiding and abetting illegal immigration, now under house arrest, Stilitano (Arturo Di Tullio) is determined to start over with his old life as a pizza maker. However, the unfavorable conditions in the country force him to leave for the Umbra Forest. There he meets a group of Italians, hidden for weeks in an old abandoned farmhouse, who like him are waiting to be able to board a makeshift dinghy to reach the much-dreamed-of Albania, a land thriving with work and hope.
