Between Turin, Dakar, and New York, Sophie, Abdoulaye and Thierno’s three destinies cross paths and echo one another, delineating a constellation of exile.
Sophie, 24 years old, leaves Dakar to join her husband, Abdoulaye, in Turin. Meanwhile, Abdoulaye has already left for New York through a smuggler’s network. 19-year-old Thierno is traveling in Africa for the first time. With these three characters’ destinies, Under the Starry Sky takes us on a journey through the diversity of the cities the characters travel to, confronting us with the realities, hopes, and dreams of contemporary emigration.

Ephraim is a young
Ethiopian boy. His father leaves him and his sheep, from which he is inseparable,
to be looked after by distant relatives, far from his drought-ridden homeland.
Ephraim isn’t very good at farming, but he has a hidden talent: he is an
excellent cook. One day, his uncle tells him that they have to
sacrifice his sheep for the next religious feast. The young boy, however, is
ready to do anything to save his only friend and return home.
