Tuscany is beautiful in every season, but 11-year-old Silvia wants to escape from the drudgery of daily life at home, made worse by her mother’s depression. She is constantly pleading with her father to take a family trip to Rome, but when he once again goes back on his promise to do so, she decides to run away and travel on the train, alone, to the Italian capital. There, she makes friends with Emina, a 13 year old gypsy girl, and discovers her world through various shenanigans, but also difficulties. Filmed with amateur actors and nominated for the Youth Award at the European Film Academy, this adorable story is based on the real-life experiences of the director.
