The Way Home

Michele is a sardinian kid, fatherless, exuberant and rebel. One morning he skips school and reaches a coastal town, apparently deserted. He wanders through the streets of the city, has an accident, gets scared and goes back home. He asks his mother for help, but she ignores him. He runs away, and roams lonely and abandoned, as a stray dog, through ruins and wild paths, pushing himself further and further away from the sea. Exhausted, he descends a gorge carved in red rock, at the end of which he commits a violence that will change him forever.
