2085. The planet is a vast desert. No more electricity or machines. For the last survivors a mysterious “Call” rings out: to meet up in Athens. Across the abandoned roads of Europe, Kal, a 17-year old boy, carries with him an enigmatic treasure: multiple reels of film, all bearing the inscription “Cineteca di Bologna”. In the ruins of the cinemathèque, he encounters Shakespeare, a wild-looking old man. The projection of the last fragments of films, provides the means by which the old man finds a renewed will to live while the boy discovers for the first time the meaning of shared joy. The journey to Athens now includes the dream of making a camera to film the last moments of humanity.
