One day, Pasquale decides to change his name and be called Tony. Because despite being born in Bari in the mid-60s, he crossed the ocean with his family at 9 years of age and grew up as a real American, all hot dogs and rockabilly. He has never been back to Italy until when, now a taxi driver in Yuma, he's arrested on account of his side hustle - smuggling illegal immigrants into the US across the Mexican border. He is therefore forced to make a choice: jail in Arizona or deportation to Italy. Once back in Puglia, he finds himself living alone in a cave at Polignano a Mare, looking at Italy as a small, inert country, with no opportunities and no dreams. But Tony is not willing to give up.
