ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Salvo, undici anni, barese, detesta molte cose. Quando ti fai male e i grandi ti dicono "tranquillo, non ti sei fatto niente", ma ti fanno fare la puntura per l'antitetanica. Quando scrivi un bel tema e non fai neanche in tempo a esserne contento perché la maestra lo legge davanti a tutta la classe e ti vergogni. E soprattutto quando ti parlano come se fossi un bambino, scandendo le parole, come se tu non le conoscessi già tutte, anche quelle volgari. Come fa suo padre, Vincenzo. Salvo non lo vede da sette anni, da quando cioè due uomini lo hanno portato via, in una scuola speciale dove però alla fine delle lezioni non lo lasciavano mai tornare a casa. Ora Vincenzo è uscito di prigione, ha raggiunto Salvo dagli zii a Udine e vuole che il figlio l'accompagni fino a Bari, dove ha una missione da compiere. Quattro giorni: un tempo enorme per Salvo, che non vuole partire con quell'uomo pieno di strani tatuaggi che fa cose di nascosto, come se avesse un segreto. Ma anche un'occasione per padre e figlio di tornare a conoscersi e a parlarsi. Un viaggio on the road verso il Sud Italia, scandito da incontri in autogrill, lezioni di vita e ricordi di un'infanzia ancora candida e piena di domande, prima che arrivi il misterioso "ladro di giorni".

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Salvo, eleven years old, from Bari, he hates many things. When you get hurt and the grown-ups tell you "don't worry, you haven't done anything", but they give you a shot for tetanus. When you write a good essay and you don't even have time to be happy with it because the teacher reads it in front of the whole class and you are ashamed. And especially when they talk to you as if you were a child, spelling out the words, as if you didn't already know them all, even the vulgar ones. As does his father, Vincenzo. Salvo has not seen him for seven years, since two men took him away, to a special school where, however, at the end of the lessons they never let him go home. Now Vincenzo is out of prison, he has reached Salvo with his uncles in Udine and wants his son to accompany him to Bari, where he has a mission to fulfill. Four days: a huge time for Salvo, who doesn't want to leave with that man full of strange tattoos who does things secretly, as if he has a secret. But also an opportunity for father and son to get to know and talk to each other again. An on-the-road trip to Southern Italy, punctuated by encounters at motorway cafes, life lessons and memories of a childhood still candid and full of questions, before the mysterious "thief of days" arrives
