The protagonist of this film is a building. Standing on the perimeter of Rome like a monolith in the open countryside is a municipal housing complex from the 70s: Corviale. This ravaged concrete structure, which stretches for over a kilometer, has become the embodiment of a failed utopia from an urban planner's drawing board. The film interweaves the vistas of this fascinating architectural monstrosity with the ways the inhabitants see their living space.
