A family. Father, mother and two children. Confined to the house in which they live. Outside, an unnatural fog, burning people alive with whom it comes into contact. No possibility for communication with the outside, only hypotheses about a possible cause of the phenomenon. In complete isolation, in lack of supplies, the sound of a glass breaking. Despite the thick mist outside, someone entered the house. Maybe not everybody die in the fog... Written by

During interviews, the Sicilian director Antonio Micciulli
revealed that "Tempo di Reazione"'s prominent allegorical aspect is inspired by the disruptive relationship between the Italian society (here represented by the family) and the Mafia mobsters (the "immune" girls). Keeping up with that, the title "Tempo di Reazione" (lit. Reaction Time) refers primarily to the reaction against the Italian society and how that reaction has never really come, or came too late to be effective. To reinforce that notion, even when the story becomes increasingly grotesque, the pace of the movie remains constantly slow, paralleling the historic lack of proper reaction from the family/society.
