STORYLINE
A journey between present and past, full of testimonies and reflections to recount the writer Mario Rigoni Stern (1921-2008) on the occasion of the centenary of his birth. Over the course of a day, from dawn to starry night, Stern’s voice recalls the years of war and imprisonment. The sergeant of the Alpine troops, having returned home, has become over time the Guardian of the Asiago Plateau, and his homeland takes on the value of a world to be preserved against wars and indifference.
