From unstable backgrounds, six young people, bonded through their common feelings of disenchantment and paralysed by their existential problems, are veritable time-bombs. Gradually sinking into a moral quagmire full of violence and humiliation, they kidnap a victim and take him into an abandoned building to vent their confused feelings on him through a series of sadistic games. Luca, however, is different. Emotionally struggling with his own secret he joined the group only recently having a special purpose: the revenge. But why and on whom...
Constructed like a thriller, with no linear chronology, this furious outcry against gaybashing is Italy’s answer to Clockwork Orange and Trainspotting.
