Gennaro’s Fever


What urges Gennaro, a young man born in Puglia, son of artisans, to leave at 19 everything behind and dedicate himself body and soul to helping the most disadvantaged people on earth in conflict zones? It was November 6th, 2017 when Gennaro, as volunteer with previous experience in Syria, Lebanon, West Bank, and Niger, left on board of the Sea Watch ship in the Mediterranean, having to face the decision of choosing ‘who to save’. In those frantic moments, still painful to remember, he rescued Merline, an African woman. That event left a permanent mark in his life, pushing him to follow his “feverish” need to help others. Years later, during a mission in Colombia, Gennaro will have to measure himself against another difficult, but thrilling, situation. Merline’s phone call from Germany will lead him to a new journey, due, this time, to some happy news.
