Synopsis:

Once upon a time there was a dark fairy tale set in outskirts south of Rome, between a brutally built melancholy coast and swampy countryside. A small family community composed of parents, teenagers and teachers.
The characters seem apparently normal. There, silence covers the subtle sadism of the fathers (imperceptible but inexorable), the passivity of the mothers, and the guilty indifference of the teachers.
Overall, it is the desperation of the children, diligent and cruel, incapable of listening, that explodes in repressed rage and flows quickly through the loss of everyone.
