"Young dutch visual storyteller follows dream and undertakes a voyage of discovery to the unknown south of Italy. He ends up in a most curious place. It's one of worlds most ancient settlements, continuesly inhabited, in the world called Matera. A behyve of alleys and streets, houses half cavated from rockformations.

The first night he spends in a design hotel in a deep cave! From his new home skims the region of Basilicata in search for stories to tell.

He'd find an important reason to stay in these lands, yes of course: LOVE .

Driven by fiery love and passion he seeks to become a local. But that's not to easy. The standards of they are high. You have to have courage, speak the local language, eat and prayer in order to loved and be loved."
