A man sets out on a motorcycle. His destination is the southern Spanish desert near Almerìa. In the solitude there, he would like to read the religious book "Letters from the Desert" once again. But first he goes to a nearby monastery to say goodbye. The monks not only wish him all the best, but also give him a new name on the way: Thomas. Thomas soon has to say goodbye to the thought of the planned loneliness, because at a rest stop he meets the young Lucia, who is being chased and harassed by two gangsters. Thomas helps her and takes her with him. As it turns out Lucia also wants to travel to Spain to visit her aunt. That's what she tells Thomas. On the ferry from Civitavecchia to Barcelona the unequal couple slowly gets closer and Thomas recognizes that Lucia is carrying a secret with her. Arriving in Barcelona Thomas realizes that no aunt is waiting for Lucia. Lucia says she had not managed to pick her up and she now has to continue to Málaga. So the journey together continues to Almerìa. In the desert they finally read the book together and find peace.

The film was to be called La chiamavano Maryam in 2016. On December 8, 2016 Terence Hill presented the film to the public for the first time in the Italian game show Rischiatutto and also presented a first trailer in which the film still had this title. But the release was delayed and so the movie got the new title "Gone for a while..." in 2017. (in Italy also translated as "Me ne vado per un pò..."). On February 14, 2018, the German distributor finally announced the film. It is now called "My name is Thomas", apparently a reference to "My name is Nobody", with which the film itself of course has nothing to do. On March 18, 2018, the date for the Italian cinema release was finally announced on April 19, 2018. At the same time, a new trailer was released, according to which the film will now also be entitled "Il mio nome è Thomas" in Italy.

The shooting began in Rome on September 15, 2016. The film was also shot in Civitavecchia, on board of the Grimaldi Lines ferry Cruise Roma, in Barcelona and on the Spanish coast. From mid-October, the film was finally shot in Almería and the surrounding desert. The shooting was finished in the middle of November.

The book Thomas wants to read in the desert is the real work "Lettere dal deserto" (Letters from the Desert) by the Italian clergyman Carlo Carretto. It was published in Italy in the early 1970s and must have had a lasting impact on Terence Hill.

The title song The World under my shoes was written by Franco Micalizzi, who also composed the music for They call me Trinity, Go for it and Double Trouble. There is an instrumental and a sung version. The song is sung by Albert Douglas Meakin, who has already interpreted the songs Mr. Nothinggoesright, In the middle of all that trouble again and What's goin' on (in Brazil). The distinctive whistling in the song comes from Alessandro Alessandroni, who has already been heard as a whistler in the Trinity title song and in various melodies by Ennio Morricone. For Alessandroni it was his last job at the age of 91.
