A tale of conflict and danger set in present day Naples. Like a modern Antigone, a social worker on the frontline of the daily war against criminal mentality is confronted with a moral choice that can destroy the sense of her work and her life forever.
Civility is put to the test - and fails. But: life will go on. To me, that is the essence of this story. It's a very simple story of a person in need of help, and another person willing to give it. But the world around them, and their own human faults, stand in the way of a happy ending. Nothing overly dramatic happens in this sombre movie. It is a quiet meditation on human life, where it succeeds, and where it fails. And yet, it had me on the edge of my seat constantly. Maybe I'm getting soft.
