This is the perfect film for parents who are looking to alternative education as a way of offering their children the space for reflection and decision-making which, they believe, cannot be found in a state school. Anna and Lucio are looking for such an option for their daughter, but when they find it, they begin to have doubts. They decide to learn more about alternative education, and end up traveling across and beyond Italy to explore various possibilities. They remain genuinely curious throughout their journey, asking questions and listening to specialists while accepting that they do not have all the answers. Among the most pressing of questions are: How does a child brought up in an alternative system integrate into mainstream higher education? Are alternative schools nothing but factories churning out misfits?
