Naples. Present day. Giovanna, a combative 60-year-old social employee on the frontline of the every day battle towards pervasive criminality, is confronted, like a contemporary Antigone, with an ethical dilemma that threatens to destroy her work and her life. Giovanna runs an after-school centre that takes care of underprivileged kids; a grassroots various to the mafia dominance of the town. But at some point, younger Maria, spouse of a ruthless Camorra legal on the run, and her two kids take refuge on the centre, and ask Giovanna for cover.
