Beyond the Border

90min   |   Italy, France  |  by Alessandro Valenti 

In Collaboration with | 102 Distribution  


The story of two African children who look at the stars and dream of making it to Italy. Their world is told as in a fairy tale: Bekisisa is 12 years old and has a magical voice that enchants animals; his little brother Eno, six years old, dreams of having the jersey of Mané, the great soccer player of his favorite team. Alone they leave their land, after suffering grief and loss, reaching Italy where reality is certainly not child-friendly. Adventures, vicissitudes and dangers, but also a great bond that unites them. Together with other children they will be in search of a better future.
