Three generations lost in the jungle of Bagnoli, a degraded working class neighborhood of Naples. Three chapters, each about one generation: Giggino, fifty-something, always on the go, a poet in restaurants, a petty thief on the streets; his father, Antonio, in his 80’s, a pensioner from Italsider, once the iconic Naples’ steel mill, now a looming, huge, rusty ghost-town still haunting Bagnoli. He’s nostalgic of his old factory days and his old political passions. A local celebrity knowing all about former soccer star Maradona’s feats, which he tells for a fee to local aficionados; and finally Marco, 18, a sweet, street-savvy deli delivery boy, struggling with his future but confused as to how to get there… Around them the jungle – where all sense has been lost and no replacement has been found yet.
