UNA TEMPESTA DI SABBIA
Alex is 19 years old and of Romanian origin. In prison jargon he is a “young adult”, that is an adult prisoner who, for crimes committed before his majority, serves his sentence in a prison for minors. Following some episodes of violence in the Penal Institute for Minors of Treviso, Alex is transferred to the IPM of Bari, where he spends the first months of detention in isolation and where he chooses to follow only one activity, that of the theater of the Institute. A year suspended between adolescence and adulthood spent behind the bars of a cell, a journey in search of himself among ghosts of the past that resurface in moments of solitude and the dream of becoming an actor, cultivated with passion until the last day of prison.
