In a not-too-distant future, Taranto is a ghost town fenced with barbed wire, which nobody, not even the Police, dares to enter. Only the poorest remained fighting for survival, while a criminal gang, the Ants, exploit that emptiness recruiting stray kids. Two thirteen-year-old orphans grew up dreaming of joining the gang. Pietro, known as Mondocane for passing the gang’s entry trial, imposes Pisciasotto into the gang, though something breaks their balance, threatening their friendship.
