The paths of the two troubled 18 year-olds are crossed by a young doctor who works at rescue centre of a humanitarian organisation in the Tar Desert.
With the light tones of a comedy, the film tackles the themes of the rites of passage into adulthood, the search for one’s own roots, the confrontation between parents and children and cultural diversity, against a backdrop of a colourful and contradictory India. Shot between Delhi, Bombay, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer, the Cattleya production was in development for a long time and is the first Italian feature to be made with India (Khussro Film), in collaboration with the UK (Aquarius) and France (Babe Productions).
