Alina is twenty-five, comes from Ukraine and works as a prostitute on the outskirts of Rome. Jani, the guy who brings her onto the street everyday, can’t keep his eyes off her. He believes the child she is carrying is his. This almost illusory certainty drives him to look for a way out from the cage that encloses them.
