Carmela, don Gregorio, Gabriella and Lorella don’t know each other but they have a lot in common. In the middle of 60ees, at the culmination of the great migratory wave, they arrived in Switzerland. And here, they have lived the Schwarzenbach’s years listening to the very young singer Gigliola Cinquetti, became famous after winning San Remo’s Festival in the 1964. Four stories crossing the notes of one of the most popular songs of the era, telling of hopes, dreams, solidarity but also (and especially) of closure, xenophobia, clandestine and exploitation.
