Italy at night seen from a gas station: an impartial meeting-point where Jamal and Rashid, who stand in for the official gas station attendant, encounter people from all walks of life. They spend their lonely nights waiting for customers to come fill up their tanks, while reading, from newspapers left by daily customers, unrealistic sex ads or financial news which to them, coming from a complex culture and different world, sound rather absurd. Yet they continue to dream of a different life.
