A boy and a girl held captive up in a huge abandoned building in a slum. They must keep an eye on one another. She is a prisoner; he has been forced by the clan’s boss to be her guard.
Both are too adult for their years. Veronica acts like a woman of the world, Salvatore like a little man devoted to work and routine. And so they react differently to the ordeal of their imprisonment: Veronica is restless and rebellious; Salvatore more submissive and accommodating, whether for fear or for realism one isn’t sure. Both are victims but seem to blame each other for what’s happened.
