About the Film:
Elia last remaining inhabitant of Provvidenza, a village destroyed by an earthquake.

To Elia, his town is still alive, and thanks to the help of an old friend, Gesualdo, he strains to keep its memory alive as well. When the mayor orders him to abandon Provvidenza, Elia seems to be on the point of pulling up stakes, when something holds him behind. Is it his imagination? Is it his lost wife buried in the rubble? Elia will have to make a decision from which there is no going back.
