Like many villages in southern Italy, Riace has long been the stage of a massive rural exodus. One day, a boat with two hundred Kurds onboard washes up on the beach. Spontaneously, the inhabitants help them. Little by little, migrants and villagers rebuild abandoned houses, revive the local economy, and guarantee the future of the school. This is how, for the past 20 years, the utopian vision of a small community in the heart of a Europe more and more seduced by segregation has given rise to a haven of peace for refugees. Watching closely as people from different backgrounds work together to create new ways of being and values, the directors rekindle our hope in humanity and in a better future.
