Director statement

“Drive me Home is the story of two best friends who reunite after years
of silence and incommunicability. They are young emigrants, dissatisfied
with the place where they were born and grew up, and this is why they
decided to live “somewhere else.” Compared to the emigration we are
witnessing today, which involves non-European countries, my
protagonists Antonio and Agostino are Italians, profoundly solitary, and,
like many others, they inevitably want to belong to a culture which isn’t
their own. They are lost souls in search of a lifeline, of a value which our
generation has trouble recognizing: their own origins.”

Chronicles

Antonio and Agostino grew up together in a small town in Sicily; they
dreamt of living a different life, somewhere else. Now thirty-year-olds,
they both live abroad but they lost touch years ago. When Antonio
discovers that the house he grew up in, which had been empty for a
long time, is about to be sold at auction, he decides to leave and
reconnects with his childhood friend. But their lives have changed a lot.
Old conflicts and new revelations bring them through Europe on a
truck journey.
