Giuseppe wakes up every day and starts looking for iron with his van. Remi is a mechanic without workshop, and he has to wait for someone bringing in a car to repair. Miriana is waiting instead for her twins to be born.
Brenda would like to get a job, but she has no documents; she was born in Italy but she hasn’t got Italian citizenship. Nor her father’s country of origin, Montenegro, has granted her citizenship, as she says, he was “deleted”.
Sasha, Diego, Marta, Cruis go to school every day, but they are never on time; the camp where they live is located on a remote position and the school bus is always late getting stuck in traffic.
Through their stories, Container 158 reports daily life in the “equipped camp” of via di Salone, where the Municipality of Rome has gathered more than 1000 citizens of the Roma ethnic group. Outside the Great Ring Road, far from everything and everybody.
