On the margins of Rome that we all know, where the Tiber creates a wide loop before running towards the sea, live men and women who seem to have met only thanks to their respective needs. Between barracks and barges, united by the management of an improvised trattoria, while alternating in small works in the fields and in the guidance of tourists citizens attracted by their archaic works, they formed a community out of time and the world in which today we are used to to live. For some time they have welcomed a man on the run. They all call him "the doctor" because he seems to offer him's care. But they also intuited that this man, almost fifty years, actually found himself among themselves to treat himself. What is the past of him? What is the pain that tore it at the house of him? While the river breathing marks the time of reading, we are attracted to the history of the life of him, his wife Anna and his daughter Teresa, his losses, of his courage, of the terror of him. Accompanied by stories of nutrias, dogs, fairy tale animals, from the rhythms of nature that deepen in the heart of the city, we will know all of this unforgettable character, ancient and modern together, and we will learn how only the pain can push the being again Human to the rebirth. A renaissance that passes through women's hands, and crosses a night to which it is right to obey.
