South of Italy, 1994. Nicholas Green adhores Italy and its history; that is why his parents brought him and his sister to Rome from the United States and are about to go to Sicily; but during a highway robbery the kid is seriously injured.
This tragedy goes on while one more tragedy is affecting another Italian family: Angelo Bianchi, a cardiopath child suddenly gets worse and doctors must tell his parents that he urgently needs a heart transplan.
A great gesture of love springs from this tragedy: thanks to Nicholas' parents, his organs save little Angelo Bianchi's and other six peolpe's life.
