Pietro is a city boy, Bruno is the last child of a remote mountain village. Over the years, Bruno remains faithful to his mountains, while Pietro is the one who comes and goes. Their meeting will lead them to experience love and loss, bringing each back to their origins and making their destinies come true, as the two discover what it means to be friends forever.
