Italy. The 70's. Along with the birth of a free Radio in Bologna (Radio Alice) and the political developments of the radical Italian left, two young men get in touch with a new consciousness which is spreading among the youth. Getting by daily and refusal of given destiny is their way of life, while tragedies surround them. (During a rally a student is shot to death in front of them (real story), a friend of them is sent to prison for the beating up of a moneylender). Directed with a subtle touch, no rhetoric, no stereotype. There's no judgment, the only aim is just to tell a story. The Italian Seventies are righteously described without taboo. Just watch it and have a two-hours-real-good-time!
