The outskirts of a city. A working-class district of old cheap buildings, where Julia lives with her son Eli, who has cerebral palsy. Eli is 20 years old and cannot speak, cannot walk, cannot really do anything, barely spend his day in his wheelchair. Now, her son has grown too much and Julia’s hernia won’t allow her to carry him in her arms, like she always did before, to get down the stairs of the building and down to the street. So, he no longer leaves the house. Julia is determined to resolve this situation by building a ramp along which she can push her son’s wheelchair. But such a simple thing may turn out to be an impossible enterprise when all the conditions are unfavourable and, above all, if achieving it depends on the will and goodness of others.
