Milan: a Palestinian-Syrian poet and an Italian journalist meet five Palestinians and Syrians who ended up in Lampedusa (Sicily) on the run from the war, and they decide to help them carry on their clandestine journey towards Sweden. To avoid being arrested as smugglers, they decide to stage a fake wedding, involving a Palestinian friend who will dress up as a bride and a dozen Italian and Syrian friends who will pretend to be guests of the wedding. They will cross half Europe in disguise, in a four-day, 3.000 kilometre-long journey. This film arrives in Turin after the success at the 70th edition of the Venice Film Festival, exposing the absurdity of armed conflicts and closed frontiers, starting with the tragedies in the Middle East and with all the people who died crossing the Mediterranean Sea.
