In the documentary 'All down in the air' about the Alitalia 'dispute', produced in 2009, Alitalia employees cried prophetically: 'Today we fall, tomorrow you fall'. Now that tomorrow has arrived. For everyone. Suicide Italy-stories of extreme dignity, directed by Filippo Soldi, starts from this consideration to begin a journey of knowledge into the reasons of crisis in Italy. Among archive footage, demonstrations images and a fiction section, we meet people who have been directly affected by this 'today'. The actress Eugenia Costantini plays the role of herself. She takes progressively consciousness of this harsh reality, she leads us to a dramatic awareness too. Many authoritative voices have been called to tell their own opinion among which the extraordinary tribute of the Nobel Dario Fo.
