Breganze, 1980s. Giulio converts a simple van into a camper van and sets off with the whole family towards an unknown destination, which in the imagination of his two children, Arianna and Matteo, is little further away than Jesolo.
But in their father's plans there is a destination much further away: Sicily. The improvised travellers reach the isle by a means of transport that cannot exceed 80 km per hour, amidst the smell of diesel, the heat and a cassette tape playing sad music.
They travel to Sicily along the entire Italian coast. There is only one rule for orientation on the outward journey: 'As long as the sea is to the left, we are going south, children'. And so on the way back, heading north.
And in this travel diary made up of real and imaginary characters, imperceptible changes, negligible glimmers of awareness, anticipated nostalgia and shipwrecks, Giulio finds time to tell stories about motorcyclists, legendary Laverda motorbikes, super champions and dirt country roads.
