Luca is a young photographer who lives in Torino.
His photos are of great value, but too personal to have a commercial outlet.
As he is short of money, he looks for and find accommodation in the San Salvario neighbourhood, where most of the immigrants from Africa are concentrated.
There he becomes the portraitist of people living in the area : they ask him for “false” portraits , in which they appear to be happy and wealthy, to send back to Africa….
