Synopsis

Drama. Two Italian boys grow up in opposite regions of Italy. Rosario is a young boy from Calabria, in the south of the country. He comes from an underprivileged background; his father is in prison, his mother dead. By contrast, the sullen Matteo comes from a wealthy family based in Turin; his father, Luigi, is a rich businessman. When Rosario gets into trouble, Luigi arranges for the boy, who is a distant relative, to live in Turin for a while. He hopes that Rosario and Matteo will become friends, the former shaking the latter out of his sullen, disinterested attitude to life in general.
