Their stories intertwine and then collide. Silvana, the wife of a provincial industrialist, convinced that Maria, their young Rumanian maid is responsible for the disappearance of precious objects from their home, with no proof and against her husband’s wishes, decides to fire her. Maria goes back to live with Ionut, her ex-boyfriend, who has just been released from jail and lives with his younger brother in a squalid suburban slum. Ionut has recently started hanging out with Marco Rancalli, a young cocaine addict and has dealings with him in petty crime. Marco also has a difficult past: he is not allowed custody of his eight year-old son. The industrialist’s family and the wealth in his villa become the sole objectives of this gang of desperate losers.
