Synopsis: In a time span of almost forty years, from the end of 1970 to the beginning of 2000 a considerable number of events unfold. For the man with the camera, however, it is different. That man in this film is Enrico Ghezzi, one of the most brilliant and influential authors of Italian television. This film is an autobiographical mosaic, which consists of encounters with the directors who matter to him, the films he loves, and private home-videos of being a father. How to find life in cinema and to discover cinema in life? Humanity may be living its last days, but it needs such a film in order not to forget how to recognize beauty.

Directors Bio: Enrico Ghezzi, a film critic and television author has played a vital role in promoting rare films and reinterpreting classic cinema moments. He's created TV programs and collaborated with newspapers, directed festivals, and published monographs. Ghezzi's work includes short films and music videos for notable Italian artists.
