Two African children look at the stars and dream of arriving in Italy. Their world is told as in a fairy tale: Bekisisa, is twelve years old and has a magical voice that enchants animals; his little brother Eno, aged six, dreams of having the shirt of Mané, the great footballer of his favorite team. Alone, they leave their homeland after suffering grief and loss and reach Italy where reality is certainly not child-friendly. The two will experience adventures and face dangers, but a great bond unites them and other children will also be with them in search of a better future.
