Not only for himself and his family, but also for the neighbourhood in which he lives. Unfortunately Mirko's biggest dream is difficult to put into practice, especially if his father is a well-known small criminal. Besides that, he has to get back in touch with his daughters as well, and in this foggy and unexplored territory past always represents the easiest way.
