Synopsis

On a summer tourist island off the coast of Sicily, the lives of two struggling, yet disparate families become fatefully intertwined. A well-intentioned but illegal rescue of immigrant "boat people," forces the members of the indigenous family to choose between their economic survival and doing the morally correct thing with respect to the family they've saved. In the process, both families are slowly torn apart as they come to grips with the harsh reality and consequences of their actions.
