SYNOPSIS
Samuele’s job is to kill chickens. In his early thirties, he is the only Italian working in that sector of a huge food company. Every day, eight hours a day. And he hates immigrants. At the same time he desperately needs the job. He will do whatever it takes to keep the only important thing in his life close to him: his six year old son Elvis. When a young Senegalese colleague saves his life something breaks in him. Because to be in debt to someone he hates is the worst thing that could happen to him.
