Three young friends and a duck on a journey to find the sea.
Adam is a boy of 8 who walks up hills and down dales in the Tuscan countryside until he suddenly appears in a small town near Siena. There he meets Arianna and Martino, his companions in adventure who will travel with him to the sea, the place where Adam hopes to find his parents.
