The Human Body depicts the struggle, the vicissitudes and the internal and external growth of a platoon of young Italian soldiers that are sent for the first time on a mission to the forward operating base (FOB) Ice in Gulistan, Afghanistan, which the writer described as "a sandy enclosure exposed to adversity". During the night the camp is obscured, it is invisible, there are no man-made or natural noises, only the incessant activity of the human body that penetrates the minds of the soldiers in their camp beds.
