Turin-based Southerner Calopresti uses the story of a tenuous friendship between two very different boys to reflect upon the uneasy relationship between Northern and Southern Italy. Visiting his native Southern seaside town, a Turin businessman encounters a young boy essentially orphaned by the Mafia. He decides to bring the boy back to Turin with him, hoping that he will befriend and influence his own sullen teenaged son.Print courtesy of Celluloid Dreams.
