Angelo, in his 70s, works in Senegal as a diamond trader. When a large diamond is discovered nearby, he sets out to find it. At this time, a woman brings him a little girl named Yeme, claiming that she is his daughter. Her mother died shortly after her birth. Still in search of the diamond, they face many obstacles on their journey to become a family, framing the complex dynamics between Africa and the Western world. For Angelo, becoming the father of a girl from such a distant culture, and for Yeme, becoming the daughter of a restless man, convinced that he is nearing the end of his life.

Incomparable aspires to investigate a particular aspect of the human condition. Inevitably marked by failure and suffering, it seems at the same time to be permeated by an irrepressible tension towards the good. The subject presented here is an opportunity to delimit this consideration to the limited sphere that is the family, intended as one of the primary contexts in the creation of one's own image of oneself and the world. The film is built on the observation of a family on the edge. In the conviction that this being-on-the-edge can bring out by contrast that essential element perhaps found at the basis of every filial relationship, a feeling of love, regardless of the form it may take from time to time. Against the backdrop of this narrative, the Italian and African dimensions of society and its rules emerge in relation to the profound change that involves the contemporary era, with no boundaries.
