Human plots is born from the idea of telling the strength of an action through music. Actions that, in the impelling need to be accomplished, in their urgency, as well as in their power, find their fulfillment. Stories that take place in different contexts, in places far from each other, in different periods but linked by an irrepressible inner urge.

Danuta Danielsson, the woman portrayed in a famous photograph while hurling her handbag at a neo-Nazi protester.

Miomir Mile Plakalovic, the taxi driver who for 1440 days helped people wounded by snipers and grenades on the streets of a burning Sarajevo.

Keiko Fukuda the strong-spirited judoka who defied tradition to become the only female 10th Dan in the history of Judo.

John Metcalf the adventurous blind road builder who, driven by an iron will, built 300 km of roads in 18th century England.

Abdel Kader Haidara the librarian who, by coordinating relatives, archivists, employees and tourist guides, saved 350,000 precious manuscripts of the Timbuktu library from the fury of terrorists.

Helin Bölek, Mustafa Koçak, Ibrahim Gökçek, the Turkish musicians of the Grup Yorum who, in order to affirm their essential right to defend their freedom, began a hunger strike that ended with their death after 323 days.

Extraordinary actions far from any rhetoric about heroism, made by men and women who give us back a concept of humanity that is still noble.

Finally, the city that most of all embodies the inability to act, in contrast with the stories I have chosen to tell. Jerusalem, slave of incommunicability, victim of immobility even in front of God’s gaze, as Paul Simon suggests in Silent Eyes.
