Each month, a multitude of nurses from the South of Italy cross all of Italy to try their luck in an open competition in the great cities of the North. There are just few positions for the thousands of candidates. The majority of them try several times a year. To save money, they travel over night on board of a low cost bus dedicated to individuals with the same goal, that leave them at the various places to take the exam at dawn. Each of them carrying their own story, their own hopes and fears.
An on the road documentary about the mirage of a job and the tragedy of a nation struggling with unemployment. A journey at the heart of a great social, moral and economic Italian crisis, that today has repercussions over all of Europe.
The project has won the support of SCAM – Bourse Brouillon d’un Rêve and it is a finalist in Premio Solinas Documentario per il Cinema 2019.
