While fishing in the sea near their home island of Linosa, Sicily, aging fisherman Ernesto (Mimmo Cuticchio) and his 20-year-old grandson Filippo (Filippo Pucillo) spot a dinghy packed to the gills with illegal immigrants in transit from North Africa. Afraid that some of the men and women on the floundering raft will drown, Ernesto offers help, and ultimately welcomes a young Ethiopian boy and his pregnant mother back to his home - at the risk of being found out and arrested by the police.<br /> <b>Note:</b> In Italian with English subtitles.
