[..] Every January, in many quarters of Naples the collection of the spruces for the bonfires of Saint Anthony is a tradition, a ritual, an adventurous game that the kids pass down from generation to generation. For those witnessing from the outside, such conduct and rituals may just appear as a sequence of juvenile acts of vandalisms and yelling until night, that ends with a dangerous fire, too close to the buildings. [..]


Urban artists, writers, painters, social activists and award-winning filmmakers Cyop&Kaf tell the story of what happens during the cold days of January to poor street children.

The documentary follows their gangs when they fight or build coalition to survive.

Cyop&Kaf observe their behavior, moral street codes and language.

We will participate in their nocturnal adventures.
