    • Synopsis
    • Rome. Today. Marco (40 y.o.), has managed to raise his daughter Sara (11 y.o.) after the death of his Israelian wife by heroin overdose. While the man struggles to support the medical attention Sara needs to cure her chronic illness, she meets a Rabbi and decides she wants to get closer to her roots, secretly starts studying with the Torah, getting ready for her forthcoming bat-mitzvah. But the money runs out and Sara has no longer access to her therapy. So now Marco, in need of quick cash, is forced to get back to his old, not so clean, roots. He finds work for an old acquaintance, a loan shark who used him in the past to solicit bad payers. In a karmic downward spiral Marco is forced to psichologically and physically terrorize poor people like him, honest families, shop owners, ill people, who have asked the help of his employer, becoming entangled in a web of debts and ever increasing interests. On one of his terrorizing ventures Marco ends up in a shop owned by the Rabbi, and while scaring the old man he is seen by his daughter who is there for the religious preparation. Because of the shock (and the lack of treatment) Sara has a crisis and is hospitalized. She is tested and the results show the urgent necessity of an operation that can only be performed in Israel. Marco is forced to make a quick decision. In a spur of justice, revenge and need he decides to rob his employer to get the sum necessary to help his daughter fly to Israel and get operated. But things will not work as planned: a sudden and unexpected death will change all of their destinies. All of our charachters will follow the path their souls and karma have planned for them.
