Belfast, 1969. Buddy lives with his mother and older brother in a mixed neighborhood inhabited by Protestants and Catholics. They are neighbors, friends, schoolmates, but there are those who want them to be sworn enemies and literally throws fuel on the fire, stirring up religious conflict, destroying the windows of the houses and the peace of the community. Buddy’s Protestant family keeps themselves out of trouble, does not succumb to the lure of the violent and eagerly awaits the fortnightly return of their father from London, where he works as a carpenter. To emigrate is a temptation, but how to leave beloved Belfast, the grandparents with their precious advice on life and love, the blonde Catherine of the first bench?

Mamma Roma is a prostitute who suspends her business following the marriage of the patron Carmine with a peasant woman. The woman calls her son Ettore to her who, in the surly psychology of a teenager, considers her mother a stranger and who soon has the first sexual experiences with a very shrewd girl. Mamma Roma, for her part, has a well-established resale in the local market and she wants a better future for Ettore. She therefore instructs a prostitute to win the favors of her son and organizes a blackmail to procure a job for Ettore. But Carmine pushes the woman back onto the sidewalk with the threat of revealing the whole truth to the boy. Ettore, who has quit his job and is dedicated to petty thefts, has discovered the truth about his mother’s sad job on his behalf.

Newcastle, 1961. Kempton Bunton is sixty and has something to say, always. Against the government, against stupidity, against social injustice above all, which he fights like Robin Hood in the County of Nottinghamshire. But the most strenuous battle is that at home with Mrs. Bunton, the wife exacerbated by the life and premature death of their daughter. Kempton writes plays that no one will read and fights with the BBC to abolish the canon for seniors and war veterans. He spends half the time opposing it, the rest looking for a job. To contribute to the family economy, the younger son steals the portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery.

On the beach where she goes every day, a large and noisy family from Queens arrives like a hurricane, with Greek origins and probably some ties to the organized crime. After the initial reaction of annoyance, Leda begins to observe with interest Nina, the young mother who is part of the group of “invaders”, and the relationship between Nina and her child brings back to the teacher’s memory her relationship with her two daughters, now in their twenties, when they were still small.

Betty and Rita, her name is borrowed from Hayworth, investigate to find her, becoming accomplices and then lovers. The first excels in casting, the second progressively rebuilds her identity.

After a long time spent between Lebanon and Egypt Felice, having become a wealthy entrepreneur, returns to Naples, the city where he lived until he was 15 years old. Her mother Teresa, “the best seamstress in the Rione Sanità”, lives in a low, and welcomes with open arms that son she believed lost forever. Little by little Felice gets back in touch with a world that he had forcibly put aside and meets Don Luigi, a priest who fights the Camorra trying to give a future to the young people of the district. But Felice also needs to be reunited with Oreste, a close friend and companion of adolescent raids, who has become a small boss of the Camorra. And the advice to leave Naples and forget that dangerous friendship is useless: as if it were possible, leave behind a city that has entered your heart forever.
