Giulia is constantly torn between the need to feel at home and be loved and a wild desire for freedom. One day she finds herself homeless and begins, in her own crazy way, to seek shelter and her own place in the world. Between an illusory desire for motherhood and ways to make ends meet, she spends the hottest days of a torrid Roman summer surrounded by elusive characters with empty lives, yet pure and wonderful like her. In a limbo made up of nothing (and everything), Giulia understands that it is up to her to decide how to live, or not to live, her own life.

"Giulia is about something that you can't either touch, see or tell. About a group of crazy, happy-go-lucky characters, living in conditions that would drive anyone used to a life of certainties utterly mad. It's a film that weaves from side to side, and I tried to tell its story through the gaze of someone who is surprised by what happens. I wanted to show, with extreme realism, all the beauty and drama of these characters I am deeply in love with, respecting my own idea of cinema by making tough choices and without resorting to strangeness for its own sake, nor to what is tried and tested, or the easy way out." [Ciro De Caro]
