Originally from Senegal, Awa (40) works as a maid in a luxury hotel on the ski slopes of Bardonecchia, the last Italian town before France. In the middle of her shift, she crosses paths with Souleymane (15), a young migrant who is desperately trying to cross the border to join his father in Paris. Helping Souleymane traverse the mountain will be the only way for Awa to silence a dull and constant guilt.
