A moving epic of universal significance.

Beginning of the 20th century, in the north of Italy, in Ughettera, the birthplace of the Ughetto family. As life in this region has become very difficult, the Ughettos dream of a new start abroad. According to legend, Luigi Ughetto crossed the Alps and started a new life in France, which changed the fate of his beloved family forever. His grandson tells their story here.
From a highly personal story, in which the history of his father’s family unfolds, director Alain Ughetto has created an animated film of unprecedented creativity. Every sentence narrated by Ariane Ascaride evokes an infinite tenderness for this unique family whose fate is shared by so many Italians.
