There are those condemned to live behind bars without ever having committed a crime: the small children of female prisoners. Vito is one of them. As Italian law dictates, at the age of three he is “freed,” taking with him the weight of his highly unusual childhood. The visits to the prison inevitably set little Vito back: every event, passage and detail sparks in him a small short-circuit that brings back to life a too-near past and smothers his desire to see his mother again under a growing anxiety. The film – focused on Vito’s mood swings – presents the difficult interactions with the surrounding world, through the insistent and obsessive look into a child’s universe built upon the lack of freedom.
