PLOT : Naples, 1987, the season of the first Scudetto and of a city hoping for redemption. The inhabitants of a suburban building live out their last months before making way for an elevated railway that will sweep away their little world forever. Anna is 13 years old and, in a hurry, to become a woman. On the piano keyboard she should be learning to play are the tricks stolen from her mother, Susi, who places in her all the expectations of a life she has never lived. Her encounter with Peppino, a boy of her own age, and with that Mariuolo who has destabilized the neighborhood, will take her to the edge of that small world and the step that separates childhood from the future.
