    • Synopsis
    • Alfonso is a Neapolitan scientist; he is shy and inept and has just lost his job.
      Gayan is a fascinating former cricket champion from Sri Lanka. Now penniless, he has
      just arrived in Naples in the belief that here he will find Paradise.
      Alfonso has spent his life studying cell migration and watching soap operas with his
      mother.
      Gayan has travelled and known fame, glory and money.
      What do these two men have in common? How can two such different people come
      into contact and how can their lives become so indissolubly bound?
      In a multi-ethnic Naples, Alfonso and Gayan’s lives become intertwined as they are
      forced to share a shack built illegally on the rooftop of a building in the heart of the
      city’s Sri Lankan neighbourhood.
      Because of a tragicomic misunderstanding, Alfonso needs to hide from a gang of
      mobsters and Gayan becomes first a hostage and then his only ally.
      And from this paradoxical cohabitation, a very special friendship is born, a partnership
      that gives them the courage to face their fate and change it forever.
