Synopsis

Power, money and blood: these are the “values” that the residents of the Province of Naples and Caserta, have to face every day. They hardly ever have a choice, and are almost always forced to obey the rules of the “system”, the Camorra. Only a lucky few can even think of leading a “normal” life.
Five stories are woven together in this cruel and apparently imaginary world, but one which is deeply rooted in reality.

______________

Le pouvoir, l’argent et le sang. Telles sont les “valeurs” avec lesquelles les habitants de la province de Naples et de Caserte doivent se confronter chaque jour. Presque toujours, les gens n’ont pas le choix, presque toujours ils sont forcés d’obéir aux règles du Système, la Camorra, et il faut avoir une sacrée chance pour pouvoir seulement penser à mener une vie “normale”. Dans ce un monde impitoyable, loin de la réalité mais en effet profondément ancré dans ce pays, cinq histoires s’entrecroisent.
