Synopsis:
Silvia is a headstrong, determined eleven-year-old girl from a small town in Tuscany. Silvia’s mother, Giulia, is incapacitated by a severe episode of recurrent depression and her father Pietro, a introspective man of few words and many rules, is of little help. Silvia suffers greatly from the rejection of her mother and lack of attention from her father, and, at her breaking point after another negative response from her parents to her question about a promised trip to Rome, Silvia gathers her things together and leaves alone. On the train Silvia meets Emina, a smart, defiant thirteen year old Gypsy girl, and upon arriving in Rome, follows Emina as she disappears down a stairway inside Rome’s enormous Termini station.
