A social worker running a community center for at-risk kids in Naples, finds her goodwill questioned when she provides shelter to a criminal's wife and children.

Set in a Naples community beset by the Camorra mob, a social worker unwittingly helps a lieutenant of the Camorra by helping his family, who in turn hide him after a bungled hit, risking backlash from the community and the police. A fine, sober, and authentic story of inescapable cycles of violence in which the sins of the father are unquestioningly visited on their children. Winner of the Italian Golden Globe for Best Picture.
