THE WHOLLY FAMILY

Film stills

A crowded street in Naples city centre, plenty of shops selling presepi. A wealthy American couple and Jake, their 10-year-old child, try to push their way through the crowd. While husband and wife argue which street to take, the boy is unwillingly separated from them and taken on a dreamlike journey between reality and imagination throughout the most hidden places and symbols of Naples.
