Venice is a beauty parlour in Zagreb, a giant mall in Istanbul, a Romanian village with more sheep than people, a waterway in the periphery of Berlin… Personal stories told by a handful of characters around the world who have never set foot in Venice, but who all have intimate ties with the city: men and women give life to their own idea of Venice while the real city is shown suspended between its exceptional floods and a human desert of contagion. A voyage to discover how its roots are not simply far away but are, indeed, elsewhere.
