The Story

In this satire, workers from southern Italy relocate to Milan and adjust to life in the city, where they reside in a house together. Among the group are Gigi (Luigi Diberti) and Carletto (Nino Bignamini), two country boys who are overwhelmed by urban living. While some of the transplants find work at a hectic restaurant, others are employed at a grim slaughterhouse. When some of the migrant workers are unable to make ends meet, they resort to theft, making their situations even worse.

Co-presented with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne.
