Nevia is 17 and lives in the suburbs of Naples with her beloved little sister, their aunt and their grandmother. She is a stubborn teenager, determined to get from life much more than fate has planned for her, but it’s hard to be a girl in a place where only men can make the rules and apparently there are no options but make ends meet with little illegal jobs.
