Once upon a time, in a small family suburb on the outskirts of Rome, the cheerful heat of summer camouflages a stifling atmosphere of alienation. From a distance, the families seem normal, but it’s an illusion: in the houses, courtyards and gardens, silence shrouds the subtle sadism of the fathers, the passivity of the mothers and the guilty indifference of adults. But it’s the desperation and repressed rage of the children that will explode and cut through this grotesque facade, with devastating consequences for the entire community.

Self-taught, the twin brothers Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo made their debut in the fictional feature Boys Cry, presented in the Panorama section of the Berlinale and nominated for four David di Donatello Awards. Thanks to this successful breakthrough, they had the opportunity to receive mentorship from personalities like Paul Thomas Anderson at Sundance and prepare their second feature, Bad Tales.
