Atypical People ( Watu Wa Ajabu)

"GenteStrana" (Atypical People) is a docu-film that recounts one of the many missions of the non-governmental organization CEFA.
Reporter Loris Bonetti will unfold two parallel stories: the one of the Tanzanian ten-year-old boy John Sagala, and the one of the young Italian Marco Rinoldi, sent to Africa to help the population of Njombe. John is the son of two cattle farmers who, due to the lack of skills and resources in the place where they live, are not able to manage and start up a company.Marco is also the son of a farmer, but his company is part of a large consortium in northern Italy. Marco has learned a lot growing up in that environment but, due to conflict he has with his father, he has no intention of succeeding him in the family business. Despite multiple difficulties, the arrival of Marco and other collaborators of Cefa in Tanzania will bring great benefit to John and his family. The two men will create a great bond that will last over time and that will make them both grow through exchanging values and skills.Through the reportage work with Marco and John, Loris will also find the previously lost part of himself, learning to accept the suffering that life has reserved for him and looking to the future with no regrets.
