Synopsis:
In the middle of a quiet, barren countryside, there is an empty, still immaculate, four-lane highway made of asphalt that extends as far as the eye can see and has been inactive since it was built a few years ago. Just at the edge, only a few meters from the guardrails, there is a house with a little garden, standing alone. In this house, there lives a family. It is the beginning of the summer, and the highway is going to be opened to traffic. Literally “planted” on the edge of the highway just a few meters from the cars, amidst the increasingly intolerable and persistent noise, the family loses its bearings, its fragile equilibrium, and ends up withdrawn, marginalized and sinking little by little into insanity…
