Synopsis: 

The Castro was an occupied building in Rome, Italy. A shelter for those left behind, for many people a home which none of them owned. For more than ten years it has given many families a chance of life. Yesterday it was tolerated, today it doesn’t exist anymore. This documentary was more than a year in the making and reveals the everyday life of a community living in extraordinary circumstances. The Castro like a Tower of Babel tells its own story in many voices but with the same semantics: dreams and unresolved needs.
