The dawn of romance.
A phone call of love across the continents, from the Old World
to the Tropics by way of a satellite.
It’s winter in Italy, it’s summer in Ethiopia on the shores of Lake Chamo.
A sea of purple frangipani is in bloom all around.
A Purple Land turns into a Land of Love.
The beginning of Marina and Sebastián's love story:
soon after they met Marina went on a trip to Africa,
leaving each of them secretly wondering
if their budding relationship would survive time and distance.
When the satellite phone rang in the middle of nowhere
and Sebastián's voice came through,
Marina knew it was for keeps.
