Appeal Court of Assizes, Milan. Morning. An unfamiliar, empty room accommodates a few people summoned there, on that day, without grounds. Their eyes look dazed, the half exchanges between them are cautious. At this point, the viewer is wonderfully, unexpectedly let into an intricate world made of whispered comments, breaths, silences, questions, and quiet confessions from strangers to strangers. These are the fragments of faces and thoughts belonging to the unknown individuals chosen for the trial jury of the Milan Appeal Court of Assizes, that is working on the most well-known massacres and crimes of the past few decades in Italy.
