Film edition 2021


Salvo’s father was arrested before his eyes when he was only five years old. Seven years later the boy lives a quiet and controlled life with his uncles in Turin, until his father is back and willing to take his son with him, as an insurance, on a trip to Bari to carry an important load. But that is not the only reason for Vincenzo to want Salvo with him. The child proves to be a means of redemption for a man who has lost control of his life.
