A hymn to literature and the power of reading.

Lucio likes to read aloud, and he does it very well. He has no desire to study, and he quickly loses the job he has just found. One day, in the library, he opens a book and starts reading it aloud. He is chased away by the librarian, but a gentleman who has just had the opportunity to listen to his special and exciting way of reading offers him a volunteer activity, as a ’home reader’. Lucio will thus go to read famous books aloud from house to house, meeting people who need him. And one day he will find himself reading for someone who will change his life forever.
