    • Synopsis
    • Giovanni and Anna are a married couple in their
      sixties who have lived together all their lives, with
      honestly and dignity. They both work in a trattoria
      in the small provincial town where they live; the
      restaurant is run by Anna, and Giovanni also
      works there, having been made redundant.
      However, in the past few years the economic
      crisis has hit town and work, Anna has not been
      able to keep up her payments and she has
      accumulated a debt with the tax authorities. Now
      there’s a nasty demand for payment hanging over
      her, which the couple have no idea how to pay.
      Until the tax collection agency decides for them
      and demands the repossession of their home and
      its sale by auction. For Giovanni and Anna this
      marks the beginning of an inexorable ordeal which
      will lead them to lose first their home, then their
      work, and ultimately their privacy. Transferred to a
      group home by the social services, forced to live
      apart and in degrading conditions, the spouses will
      do anything to get their lives back. And when it’s
      their dignity that’s on the line, they choose an
      extreme solution.
