A young woman finds herself in a state of perpetual motion. Setting out on a freewheeling journey to an unknown destination, she begins a worldwide search for place, meaning, memory, family connections, love and self. Battling herself and the threads that bind her to home, as well as the multiple choices offered by the whirling world, she comes face to face with characters who divert, confront and entice her.
Blue Italian weaves together a rich tapestry of characters, images and humour, telling its powerful story through the language of memory, childhood songs, and adventure travel.
