Synopsis:  Thirty years old Nicola, after one more disappointing job interview, decides to go on a trip with his little brother Elia.  During their journey they discover today’s Italy;  all its beauties and its faults.  At first the two brothers notice mostly the negative aspects of the country, which they find in abundance.  Only towards the end do they encounter the positive side of Italy, which leaves the audience with a sense of hope for the future.  The themes that are developed in this movie documentary are mostly those related to the rights of children, to discover how many aspects of our society do not take into account the rights of the younger generations.  UNICEF has selected Sarà un paese to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the UN Convention for the Rights of Children and Adolescents.
