On the banks of the River Stura, in Turin, the "Platz" is home to a thousand Roma, Romanians and Italians, living in very precarious conditions. Following the municipality's decision  to bring an end to this urban "abscess", the De Sario brothers film final months of existence of one Europe's largest shantytowns, like a labyrinth populated with ghosts on borrowed time.
