Max is 11 years old and is locked in his room, while the world outside is running fast. In his left hand he holds a sandwich that his mother had prepared for him, and in his right hand a pen. He has to finish his homework soon so that he can go out and help his father and brother with their work.
His father Marino Bettella, together with his brother Paolo, transports and delivers industrial machinery. Almost every day, partly out of passion and partly because he belongs to the family, Max helps prepare the trucks for the next day’s work, even during holidays.
