Toni is the son of an Italian emigrant. After his mother’s death, he is adopted by a couple in German-speaking Switzerland. But his physical and mental ailments lead to his expulsion from the country. He is sent to Italy against his will, where he lives for years in abject poverty on the banks of the river Po, with no fixed abode. He finds work as a casual labourer, but remains true to his great passion for drawing. Then he meets the sculptor Renato Marino Mazzacurati, who convinces him to try his hand at painting. This sets him on the path to liberation. This is the story of Antonio Ligabue, a revolutionary loner in modern art.

Giorgio Diritti was born in 1959 in Bologna, Italy. His debut feature film, «Il vento fa il suo giro» (2005), screened at over 60 festivals around the world and won some 40 awards. His second feature, «L’uomo che verrà» (2009), premiered at Rome Film Fest where it won a number of prizes as well as securing three David di Donatello and three Nastro d’Argento Italian film awards. «Un giorno devi andare» (2013) screened in the World Cinema competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
