An American multinational company has decided to close a factory in a small town in the Abruzzo but its workers and employees reject the decision. Among the leaders of the rebellion is Antonio, an idealist who struggles to remain in his native region. There are also Salvatore, an old trade unionist and Mario, who has just married. They manage to attract the national television channels and to garner sympathy. But the conflict lingers on...Written by
The story is simple and maybe classic: a country-town, workers and an american factory that is going to be closed, workers and town-mates fight to evade it. The plot doesn't matter because in the center of all we have the life, the real life, not the retoric and fake one but the life lived. Friendship, love, cooperation are the protagonists, people are protagonists, character are not. It is a real story, not a real movie story. There aren't heros either particular dramatic moment. The event can make everything tragic but the movie remain something similar to a comedy.
