    In a small town in the Grecia Salentina, the Griko, a language of Hellenic origin, it’s no longer spoken. Giorgio, a 15 years old African boy, moved by a friendship with Pippi and Rocco, two elders and language connoisseurs, decides to bring Griko back to light, giving back to the town that identity long since lost.
