Summary
When I was a child, my father went away. He came home only once a year, in the summer for two weeks. My father smelled of the sea. That is because he was a great pirate. The amazing stories Dad tells of life with his pirate crew fire up his young son's imagination. But then, one year, Dad doesn't return home. Now it is his son's turn to make an amazing journey of his own, to find his father. Soon, he will discover a secret beyond anything he has imagined so far. This story is inspired by the real stories of Italians who left Italy seeking a better life after World War 2, and by one of history's great mining disasters, at Marcinelle in Belgium in 1956
Summary
A father's stories about life as a pirate fuel the imagination of his young son, but when his father fails to return home, the boy sets out to find him and learns of a secret beyond anything he could have imagined
