Barge and Bagnolo are two neighbouring small towns close to Alps. From centuries, the main activity of this area is the extraction of Luserna stone. From the second half of the 90s, after the great migration from the rural area of Zhejiang, has become the second largest Chinese community in Europe, in relation to local citizens. 90% of Chinese men work as a stonemason in quarries, in unsafe conditions and grueling turns.
Feng Teng is just returned home after spending a month in China. The last school year is beginning and, like many of his friends, he doesn't know what the future will be. A theater workshop is starting at school: he want to join with his friends.
A bitter story describes the life of a chinese teenagers group arrived in Italy as a result of family reunification, in a small village near the Alps where their fathers work the stone. Protagonists move between a past represented by culture and language of their fathers and a present of days repeated unpretentiously in a context in which they live as foreigners despite they contribute to the production process. Common denominator: the difficult affirmation of their own identity.
