A group of kids who are staying in a home for “minors at risk” just outside Portici participate almost by chance in their first rugby championship, a sport none of them have ever played before. Practice sessions, game clashes and the rituals of the sport alternate with the daily routine. The team listlessly follows Ciro, one of the employees of the home who used to play seriously, as his passion for rugby turns the “Cinghiali di Portici” into a team ready to face the championship.
