We live our lives tethered to chronological time. Our stories work differently. This profoundly moving film depicts the life of Marco Carrera from childhood through adulthood to his final years – though not quite in that order.

Everyone in Marco’s life seems to be restless and searching, from his brilliant but unhappily married parents to his wife, Marina, to Luisa, the real love of his life, a woman he’s always known, always stayed in contact with, but never touched. Drama and chance seem to haunt Marco – he declared Marina his soulmate because both of them narrowly avoided perishing in a plane crash, while later in life Marco discovered an uncanny talent for gambling – yet he somehow manages never to get ensnared in the chaos in his midst. His nickname is Hummingbird because he devotes all his energy to staying fixed in one place. It is a man who becomes a hero not through acts of courage but, rather, by always offering shelter from life’s inevitable tempests. (source:
