The parallel stories of Moka, a young artisan of Moroccan origins, and Achille, an old fortune-teller, once a celebrity on regional TVs. In the depths of a foundry, Moka, inspired in a dream by the words of Empedocles, studies and experiments with the secrets of metals transformation. Then there is Achille, who has just finished a long period in prison and is returning to normal life, motivated and eager to become a part of society again.

Le storie parallele di Moka, un giovane artigiano di origini marocchine e di Achille, un vecchio cartomante reso un tempo celebre dalle tv regionali. Moka, ispirato nel sogno dalle parole di Empedocle, scruta e sperimenta nel cuore di una fonderia i segreti della trasformazione dei metalli. Achille, invece, ritorna alla vita civile dopo un lungo periodo di detenzione, fortemente motivato a reinserirsi in società.
