In The Ciambra, a small Romani community in Calabria, Pio Amato is desperate to grow up fast. At 14, he drinks, smokes and is one of the few to easily slide between the regions factions. When Cosimo, his older brother disappears and things start to go wrong, Pio sets out to prove hes ready to step into his big brothers shoes and in the process he must decide if he is truly ready to become a man.
Filmed with participants from the local community, A Ciambra offers an immersion in a world rarely seen on screen, with a level of emotions and an energy captured by a unique cinematic language.
