Director’s statement

“All my last movies were about the ‘70s, which I consider a sort of ‘workshop’ of present Italy. I wanted to make a film about the present, I thought to draw my inspiration from one of the social phenomenon which most concern us: the irruption of emigrants in our life. The phenomenon which has changed most the aspect of our cities and the tissue of our relationships”.
