What does "To Switzerland" mean

Due to the 1980 earthquake that caused a lot of damage in addition to the death of 2.914 people, Irpinia became a land to be abandoned and many people emigrated to Switzerland, considered a happy destination.

Even today, the term can be found in many stories and memories of many people, and the short film will address this theme by telling the life of three young people and their funeral home.
