 Naples. Present day. Giovanna, a combative 60-year-old social worker on the frontline of the daily war against pervasive criminality, is confronted, like a modern Antigone, with a moral dilemma that threatens to destroy her work and her life. Giovanna runs an after-school centre that takes care of underprivileged children; a grassroots alternative to the mafia dominance of the city. But one day, young Maria, wife of a ruthless Camorra criminal on the run, and her two children take refuge at the centre, and ask Giovanna for protection.

Leonardo Di Costanzo is an Italian director. Born in Ischia, he lives between Naples and Paris. He directed several documentaries, among which Cadenza d’inganno and Odessa. In 2012 he directed his debut feature film, L’intervallo, produced by Tempesta in coproduction with Amka Films SA and ZDF.
