Synopsis

Abandoned in a park, the two-year-old girl Asya is found by Patti, a circus woman living with her husband Walter in a trailer park in San Basilio on the outskirts of Rome. With the help of Tairo, a teenager who lives with his grandma in an adjacent container, Patti starts to search for the girl's mother and gives the girl a new shelter for an uncertain period of time. La Pivellina is a film about the world of outcasts in present-day Italy: a moving tale of courage and discrimination, of loss and togetherness, a look behind the corrugated iron fence of a gated community.
