Angela, Dario, Carmen, Michele and Nino have very little in common except the fact that…they share the same – now dead – father; a fact of which they had been in total, blessed and complete ignorance. To get possession of the inheritance, they will have to start on a journey that will culminate in the scattering of their father’s ashes over a lake in Arizona. An unknown father, an unknown country, and the discovery of siblings whose existence they had never suspected makes for a decidedly curious trip that will – in sorts – give them an inkling into themselves and into each other, and – perhaps – make them into a family.
