"This is the story of a journey among signs, signs that lead to climbs, climbs and paths that clamber over the mountains. A man follows those signs all by himself, three other companions join him accross those paths: and here, the apparition of an unknown, new fellow traveller. A young man, who is also doing some researches, but even a man that knows the answers and meanwhile prays, leaving new signs. It is the fifth that appears - the fifth spirit of a man of grace, or the fifth spirit of a material way to go still and always, or the fifth spirit of contemplative ways to reconquer. A review in the form of a docufiction inspired by the spiritual sign offered by the Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, and by the journey along the Italian paths named after him, on the places of his memory."
