Valparaiso

A film by: Carlo Sironi

Rocio is pent in an immigration detention center in Rome and she got pregnant during her reclusion. She doesn’t want to tell how it happened nor who did that. She prefers to remain silent. Law does not permit to hold a pregnant woman, so Rocio gets released with a temporary residency permit at her fourth month of pregnancy. Now she is free, but she has to carry on with an unwanted pregnancy.
