What happens when a country loses its political identity? Is the concept of "left" and "right" a thing of the past? Filmmakers Luca Ragazzi and Gustav Hofer, frustrated in their hope for a shift to a more equal and progressive Italy, decide to find out why theirs is such a persistently right-wing country - and what it still means to be on the Left today. As they set off on their quest they also look back to what Italy used to be, through their own family history. Luca grew up in a communist family when Italy had the strongest communist party in Europe, while Gustav grew up in the conservative mountain area of South Tyrol, far away from any left-wing ideals, until the Green Party was born.
