Nobody wants to leave Ostia, a small Italian village at the mouth of the Tiber. Everyone who appears in this poetic documentary—apart from the odd recalcitrant teenager—feels a connection to this place, where once the body of Pasolini was found. They have either lived there all their lives or were able to quickly feel at home, as does the Chilean rapper Chicky Realeza, whose songs are clearly inspired by this captivating and sometimes eerie place. But now the illegally built houses which are home to some 500 families are being threatened with destruction.
