Sinopsis

A day-by-day chronicle of the month-long occupation of Palermo City Hall by twenty homeless families. This film is not only a unique portrait of a public institution under exceptional circumstances, but also sheds light on the controversial and often ambiguous relationships between citizens and their elected representatives.
