Italy/Terni: summer 2014. Thyssen Krupp steel mills announce the dismissal of 550 workers, left behind after countless years of service. Luigi is an elderly man, close to retirement, who is catapulted in the middle of a war at the top, fought in the street, at trade union meetings, through gossip outside the company’s gates, at demonstrations. An iron fist between workers and the steel giant, forty days of uninterrupted strike, headed to the embassies, on the road and under the European Parliament, to reach an agreement that he knows about: 80,000 euros gross of good luck . In all respects an escamotage can calm the waters, just to give time to the scandal to suffocate, letting the public forget the unlucky province and its people. In this tumultuous environment, Luigi, the sixty-year-old healthy prince, decides not to force someone else, perhaps with family to follow, to leave the job.
