Inside the walls of an abandoned Naples boarding school, a 17-year-old street vendor must spend the afternoon watching over a pretty 15-year-old who is being sequestered for reasons unknown to him. At first hostile, Veronica alternatively insults and ignores the timid and overweight Salvatore, but as he shows his gentleness and concern she starts to reveal herself and pieces of her predicament. As the pair explores the building and grounds, sharing stories and life experiences, they make some surprising discoveries about their environment and one another, though the constraint of external forces is always felt—a sense highlighted by director di Costanzo’s refined use of space.
