Plot: In Lignan, a village of few souls in the Saint-Barthelemy Valley in Val d’Aosta, an Astronomical Observatory scans the skies every night. Like a bell tower or a lighthouse, the large telescope marks the time of the small community of the mountain. In autumn, the astrophysicist Paolo Calcidese moves into the structure as the sole custodian and inhabitant to carry on his scientific research and to experiment new technologies. However, because of a technical accident, he is forced to put aside the stars and solitude in order to dedicate himself to other forms of life not yet considered: human beings.
