Martina, 28, is in search of her identity, her roots and the concept of home, investigating Tripoli, the city where her grandparents lived, with the help of a young Libyan she had contacted through the social networks. Through an exchange of pictures and chats, the relationship between the two becomes deeper and deeper. The web lets them gradually overcome the physical and cultural boundaries that separate their lives.
