A father and mother estranged for 17 years are travelling across Europe to their daughter's wedding in Italy. They will meet in Gorino, a little village to the south of Venice. Voices and events from the past emerge, piecing together the shocking nature of the truth that awaits them in Italy. The story is one of geographical and spiritual journeys.
