Alessandro left Italy for Berlin 6 years ago and still lives there today. An old saying professes that after 6 years in a foreign country, you finally realize what you really are: an immigrant. You suddenly feel disoriented and homesick, with a general sense of malaise and the desire to escape. That’s exactly where Alessandro is now. Struggling to know how he got there himself, Alessandro decides to hit the streets of Berlin, to find other Italians and see how they are coping.
