The engineer Vito Alfieri Fontana is the previous owner of Tecnovar, an Apulian company specialized in landmines production and sale. A deep existential crisis brought the engineer to question himself, his own job and his family. Especially the relationship he had with his father, a charismatic as oppressive presence is his life. One question seems to be haunting him: how many were the victims caused by his work in Tecnovar? The answer is the beginning of an existential trip from Italy to a war-­torn Bosnia Erzegovina, where teams of sappers and mine specialists are still working in land remediation.
