IO, L'ALTRO (Me, The Other)
Giuseppe and Yussef are fishermen, friends and partners. Giuseppe is Sicilian whereas Yussef was born in Tunisia but has been living in Italy for 20 years. They fish every day on the southern Mediterranean, between Sicily and Tunisia. One day, the news announces that the police are searching for an Arab terrorist involved in the Madrid bombings, called Yussef Ben Ali, just like the fisherman. They start joking about it and the $2m reward, until some evidence Giuseppe finds in Yussef's pocket makes him believe that his friend could really be the terrorist.
