In the midst of the turmoil of the separation of their parents, two young brothers decide to take a break from the world, teaming up with other local children to seek refuge in a self-sufficient society. A shack to furnish and a commune on the margins of adolescence, far away from everything but not without its disharmonies. Amateur footage and discordant camera angles capture the voracity with which childhood perceives what life has to offer: sunny landscapes, southern liturgy and media icons, initiations and rebellion. In this film De Leo and Di Corato have produced a coming-of-age story, which, on the one hand, looks to overseas cinema, and on the other, rejuvenates stories about Southern Italy by experimenting with the medium of film.
