The defeat of the auto factory workers’ utopian dream at FIAT, Italy’s most powerful car manufacturer, is narrated in an allegorical story of love and power. Emma (Valeria Solarino), raised in a working-class family with bourgeois ambitions, is romantically involved with Silvio (Fabrizio Gifuni), one of FIAT’s top executives. However, she finds herself attracted to an assembly-line worker named Sergio (Filippo Timi). Labate fictionally mixes the historical events with personal narratives, sexuality, and deep emotion. The film also stars Sabrina Impacciatore, Fausto Paravidino, Giorgio Colangeli, and Clara Bindi. In Italian with English subtitles.
