Since the early 2010s, in response to a rising level of youth crime, the Italian justice system has operated under a policy that allows courts to remove high-risk children from families involved in organized crime. Such children as Entoni, a rambunctious 12-year- old boy, a mischievous but sweet fixture in Naples' Spanish Quarters. His grandmother Dora is determined to steer him towards the right track despite her own shady past. Featuring unparalleled access to the world of Naples’ suburbs, Nascondino captures the soul of a neighborhood that finds itself both maligned and glamorized. A mythological and spiritual portrait of a community's hopes and regrets and its search for redemption.
