Edison is an Albanian child who emigrated to Italy when he was only nine years old, without his parents, for a journey of hope, on a rubber dinghy. He is in search of a sustainable existence, yet he don’t think of himself as a victim, but rather as the protagonist of an adventure, at the pursuit of colourful clouds. A challenge launched to the world and to himself, gambled on among the different faces of someone who is maybe playing a role or maybe wants only to dodge his breathless childhood. “I dreamt of colourful clouds” is also the story of a friendship which can change life: that between Edison and Alessandro. A young director from Lecce who let the Albanian kid enter his world. He builds around him a theatre show, putting his identity at a stake. Edison’s irrepressible will of succeeding finds an opportunity in Alessandro’s welcome. The human factor become decisive and give the story an unexpected outcome: an exchange of roles.
