"The detailed and heartfelt story that Sergio Rubini gave us is real, credible and in its own intense way" - CLOSE-UP
PLOT: Siblings Peppino, Titina, and Eduardo live with their beautiful mother, Luisa De Filippo, in turn-of-the-century Naples. The family's father seems to be absent, but in reality he's there, hiding in plain sight as "uncle" Eduardo Scarpetta, the most acclaimed actor and playwright of his time. Scarpetta, while not recognizing his three natural children, introduced them to the world of theatre at an early age. Upon the death of the great actor, his legitimate children divided his inheritance, while Peppino, Titina, and Eduardo received nothing. To these three young people, however, "uncle" Scarpetta passed on a special gift, his great talent. The De Filippo story is that of a family wound transformed into art. And of three young people, who, by joining forces, give life to a completely new type of theatre.

DIRECTOR NOTES:     Sru
Sergio Rubini, born in Grumo Appula in 1959, moved to Rome to attend the Accademia nazionale d’arte drammatica, which he left after only two years. In 1985, he made his film acting debut in Figlio mio, infinitamente caro..., and in 1990, his directing debut with La stazione, for which he won the David di Donatello and Nastro d’argento Best New Director awards.

Regarding his film, Rubini said: "We shot this film in Naples during the second wave of the pandemic in the midst of the emergency, in conditions of extreme danger, and yet, with an act of courage we managed to complete our project."
