Set in the early nineties, three young friends who have just survived their school leaving exams decide to embark on a three-day trip to remember, starting from the Tiber valley and travelling on foot to Rimini, sleeping in a tent along the way.
Their journey transforms into a very special experience when they find themselves climbing over the wildest parts of the Apennines, the vast beech woods of the Alpe della Luna.
