On 21 October 1929, the ocean liner 'Saturnia' sails from Trieste on its voyage to America, picking up immigrants from the ports of the Mediterranean, along with their dreams of the New World. There, an equally dreamlike encounter takes place, between two of the greatest poets of the 20th century, Fernando Pessoa and Constantine Cavafy. This masterful fictionalized documentary uses multiple visual and auditory means in order to create a stage on which the two great minds may unfold, converge and diverge, seamlessly weaving the reality of their intellect.
