What is Jason doing followed by a handful of heroes in the small town of San Chirico Raparo in Basilicata? Perhaps the famous Golden Fleece is found here? Or perhaps it is necessary to leave and face a long journey to find it? The theme of the journey is the thread uniting the various stories dealt with in the documentary: the journey of the Argonauts in ancient times; that of the inhabitants of San Chirico, who have almost all emigrated abroad and returned when they were old; and finally the journey of the new migrants, young people facing enormous danger to arrive here.
