JOURNEY TO ITALY
Naples, 2018. Six fifteen year olds want to make money, buy designer clothes and new scooters. They play with weapons and ride scooters to conquer power in the Rione Sanità. With the illusion of bringing justice to the neighborhood, they pursue good through evil. They are like brothers, they don’t fear prison or death, with no believe in tomorrow. And they know that the only possibility is to risk everything, right away. In the recklessness of their age, the criminal life will lead them in front of an irreversible choice: the sacrifice of love and friendship.
