Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This is an Italian social-action drama. When their bleak tenement gets scheduled for replacement, its underclass residents organize to prevent this. As they struggle, they also begin to develop legitimate businesses, and a new spirit of enterprise comes into their lives. However, despite having been oppressed themselves, they turn into oppressors by cruelly exploiting the Third World immigrants they bring in to work in their sweatshops.
