Checco is a young Apulian entrepreneur who opened a sushi restaurant in his town Spinazzola. A month later, he had to close his business and decided to emigrate to Africa to avoid paying his debts. He finds a job as a waiter in a Kenyan tourist resort, but a civil war soon breaks out in the country. He then decides to accompany African refugees who are trying to reach Europe in a makeshift boat. However, he does not want to return to Italy. He would prefer to go to Liechtenstein for its banking secrecy and its lower tax rate.
