Stefano became gradually blind, day by day. Twenty years ago, the darkness became total. Now he’s 59, and still desires to see the world. There is one thing he wants to see more than all others: New York. Stefano dreams to walk on Manhattan avenues and through Brooklyn bridge, to go up to the top of Empire State Building. He dreams to be in front of the magnificence of the Statue of Liberty. The Big Apple is waiting for him. But it is a half-divided apple, between high spirit and disillusionment. When Stefano complains about his chaperon-director, what should he feel if he also sees nothing? Stefano becomes angry, he's afraid of beeing an object of morbid curiosity. By that moment, Stefano becomes the real guide for the documentary and even for the travel: he accompanies his chaperon, conducing him in a place with many half truths, but with an only terrible sureness: the dark. At the end, nevertheless, a Hughes de Montalmebert's sentence occurs: "If sometimes we did not close our eyes, we should not recognize what is worth to be seen".
