With the take-off of a spy balloon from an Italian village geographically located opposite the southern part of the Istrian peninsula, the extremely unusual adventure of air officer Giuseppe Rosignoli begins. The decision to make an overflight mission over the heavily fortified Austro-Hungarian military zone of Pula was made a few months before the Kingdom of Italy entered the First World War in 1915. This fantastic story is the base for an experimental film that analyzes, constructs and explores the interrelationships of different genre patterns and the interesting potentials they possess.
