Under Southern Italy's blazing sun, Angela goes to the fields with other illegal workers, never to return. Faced with this tragic and mysterious disappearance, her loving husband Giuseppe and their son Antò move to the farm, seeking employment and the truth about his wife's death. What they discover is a harsh reality that will risk pulling the protective veil of 'magic' from their lives.

"Adapting Italian neorealism's humanist empathy for the working class, the De Serio brothers paint their father-son survivalist drama with the tender brushstrokes of a modern-day fable. Their directorial concern for disadvantaged people on the margins of society transposes contemporary Europe's exploitation of migrant labour into a fairytale battle between good and evil. In this fight, genuine belief in compassion is the primary line of defence." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
