The story charts the controversial rise of a gang of Neapolitan youngsters, known as the paranza. Fifteen years old fearless boys with innocent nicknames – branded shoes, names of girlfriends tattooed on their skin, no trust in school or institutions. Teenagers with no tomorrow, no hope, not afraid of jail or death. If they want money, they go out and get it. They go off on their scooters, take over the drug market, defy the godfathers of Naples, and spread terror and fear in the city’s streets. These power-hungry adolescents are as trigger happy with a real AK-47 as they are on their PlayStations. Their criminal activities soon lead to the irreversible sacrifice of love and friendship.

Claudio Giovannesi, Italy, 2019, 105 min. Neapolitan spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Francesco Di Napoli, Viviana Aprea, Mattia Piano Del Balzo.
