Nevia is 17 and lives in the suburbs of Naples with her beloved little sister Enza, their aunt Lucia, and their grandmother Nana. 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. Apparently there are no options but to make ends meet with little illegal jobs. Then one day, a circus comes to town, changing everything in Nevia’s life and giving her a new hope.
