Under a leaden sky, among the apocalyptic omens of Naples at the height of its degradation, grieving taxi driver Sergio comes to grips with the death of his older brother, Alfredo, who left years ago to join a Buddhist monastery in Nepal.  Sergio spends a rainy night driving streets that mirror the chaos inside him. Various clients bring their points of view on life to bear and ultimately, Sergio must find healing and happiness. A deeply sensitive animated film about loss and resurrection.
