What is “Il Popolo”? Art student Egon is determined to find out.

Coming from a little Italian town, she is having her first taste of the glamorous world of the art openings, as well as experiencing the perks of living alone in the big city.

She is fascinated by the “borgata”, the roman outskirt, but too scared to jump on that damn 105 bus to get there.

But if Egon doesn’t go to the Borgata, the Borgata goes to Egon. Her entire world shifts when she meets Er Pantaleone, a charming working class hero who introduce her to graffiti and a way of seeing life light years away from her privileged world.

Perhaps Er Pantaleone can provide the answers she needs.
