The film investigates the precarious conditions of food delivery riders in Milan during the pandemic. There are over 3000 riders in the city who move around with backpacks full of orders, knocking on doors day after day. Most of the riders are immigrants from Africa, Asia and South America, who have found themselves at the intersection of platform capitalism, gig labour, the refugee crisis and COVID-19.
