Mangini’s first film was withdrawn from distribution by the censors at the time. It portrays the lives, challenges and hopes of a group of young men from Rome’s outcast and poor suburbs. Pier Paolo Pasolini, who was then a writer and Mangini’s friend, contributed with the words that guide us through her images.
