State founded documentary, recognized to be of Cultural Interest by the Italian Ministero dei Beni Artistici e Culturali – Direzione Generale del Cinema.
With the support of the village council of San Giuliano di Puglia and with the support of Victims of the Elementary School Committee.
How can the loss of an entire generation be overcome? The death and resurrection of a village in Southern Italy.
In October 2002 a terrible earthquake struck the small town of San Giuliano di Puglia, killing 27 children and forcing the entire population to abandon the historic town centre and move to temporary accommodation a few hundred meters away.
After years, the skeletons of buildings dismembered by the violence of the quake have been replaced by scaffolding and construction works, yet the grief following the loss of children is more alive now than ever.
