A passionate journey through an area suffocated by clouds of smog, where the blasting furnaces of ILVA poison the air, land, and the water. ILVA is the largest steel plant in Europe, built right next to Taranto’s suburbs nearly fifty years ago. Its inhabitants' angers and dreams are supplemented by a nomadic intermittent radio, a digital cine-eye that marks the rhythm of the film and follows the events occurring on the edge of reality, with alienating noises, unbreathable fumes, and sudden revelations of the beauty surrounding this area.
