Living each day as if it were his last, 10-year-old Entoni is a symbol of the ‘scugnizzo’ or street kid in the Spanish parts of Napels; roaming freely around the neighborhood, playing, hustling, avoiding school and hanging around with the older kids of the local gangs. Meanwhile his grandmother Dora, the family matriarch is watching Entoni, fearing that he is going to copy the criminal pattern she started and Entonis imprisoned father has continued. Now, Entonis freedom is at risk. A law since 1917 gives the authorities the possibility to remove the children if they or the parents are involved in criminality.
