Synopsis

Pietro and Alvise are the two heirs of a fishing family on the Giudecca island, in the Venice lagoon. At the peak of the identity transformation of the city, emptied by the recent pandemic and awaiting the imminent return of tourism, the two brothers quarrel over ideological and material issues. In spite of fatigue and loneliness, Pietro would like to continue fishing for ?moeche?, the small crabs of the lagoon. Alvise, on the other hand, sees in their Giudecca house the ideal opportunity to restart economically and to consolidate the relationships with the real estate elite that governs the city. Their clash involves the whole family, in a choral story about how our world is changing.
