Synopsis
EN:

“If I have to die, I want to die my way” Maria’s time flows along with the river. She walks firmly, her hood up. A hand-to-mouth life, without dreams nor desires, spent taking care of her mother and at the service of a merciless, bejewelled old lady. With her brave-eyed Pit bull, Maria ferries pregnant women across the river, leading them to an infernal fate. But hope will pay her a visit, in its most ancestral and powerful form, as miraculous as life itself, teaching Maria that staying human is the greatest of all revolutions.

FR:

Non loin de Naples sur le fleuve Volturno, Maria est au service d’une dame qui régit un trafic d’enfants et de prostituées. Vêtue comme un homme, accompagnée de son pitbull, elle transporte sur sa barque des femmes enceintes vers un bâtiment miteux où elles accouchent. Mais un jour une femme s’échappe et Maria se met en chasse pour la retrouver.

ES:

María es una mujer de firmes convicciones que trata de sobrevivir al día a día mientras cuida de su madre en una vida privada de sueños o deseos.
