The boundary of the place is blurred, it is a strip of society which preserves fragments of a life that no longer exists, mindful of the deep trauma of an industrial process that has marked its past and compromised its future. In Porto Torres, a small port town in the north of Sardinia, the mouth of a river is a middle ground between the recent past and today’s reality. It is memory and it is the present time. A boat is sailing along the Rio Mannu, paddling slowly as if time has stopped, its stops metaphorically becoming the meeting points with the stories of a microcosm that survives at the edges of the bridge, over and underneath it. The film looks around, among the old inhabited houses, through cultivated fields under the disused railway line and inside a shack built opposite the remains of the Marinella beach. Three characters share memories of an existence, which today is a resistance that looks at the empty space it has left behind and resists change, as a custodian of its own territory and of its own time.
