Summary

En un decadente barrio italiano, un amor inesperado crece como una flor en una tierra yerma.   

En la década de 1980 los veranos en el barrio viejo de Bari transcurren  en callejones blancos donde los niños juegan a perseguirse por  laberintos de sábanas tendidas entre el aroma de las salsas. Maria, de  doce años, es pequeña, morena y de rasgos salvajes, y su actitud  insolente le ha valido el apodo de Malacarne. Vive en una tierra sin  tiempo, en un barrio donde los abusos se sufren y se infligen y de donde  es muy difícil escapar.Y, pese a todo, no está dispuesta a someterse a  unas normas que no respeta.

Su único apoyo es Michele, el hijo menor del  clan de los Sinsangre y, pese a la hostilidad entre ambas familias,  entre ellos surge un sentimiento de amistad delicado, casi fraternal,  que el tiempo convierte en amor. Un amor que, aunque imposible, les preserva del rencor del resto del mundo.  

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In a decadent Italian neighborhood, an unexpected love grows like a flower in a unfertile lands.
 
In the 1980s, the summers in the old neighborhood of Bari are spent running through white alleys where children play and chase each other through labyrinths of hung sheets stretched among the aroma of food escaping from the windows. Twelve-year-old Maria is small, dark, and has wild features; her insolent attitude has earned her the nickname of “Badblood”. She lives in a land without time, in a neighborhood where abuse is inflicted daily and where it is very difficult to escape from. And, in spite of it all, she is not willing to submit to norms that she does not respect or agree with. Her only support is Michele, the Sinsangre clan’s youngest son. Despite hostility and resentment between the two families, a feeling of delicate, almost brotherly friendship emerges between them that eventually turns into love. A love that, although impossible, takes them away from the resentment and bitterness of the rest of the world.
