Pure Hearts

22 Sep - 9:30pm
24 Sep - 4:45pm

Two marginalized young people live in two different worlds. Agnese, 17, simple and pure, lives with a stringent mother and is about to make a promise of chastity until marriage. Stefano, 25, diligent with a violent temper, works as a warden in a car park near a gypsy camp. Fate has their red strings tangled in an unexpected encounter. Both trapped by fear and stuck in limbo, they cling to each other for survival and salvation. When Agnese’s illusion of purity is shattered, she takes an extreme decision in the hope of erasing her sin.
