During the winter, Patrizia and Walter's traveling circus is at a standstill and their mobile home is fixed on a foreclosed terrain on the outskirts of Rome. On a brief walk around, Patrizia discovers a two-year-old girl, left alone at the children's playground, and takes care of her. Together with her husband and the 14-year-old neighbor boy Tairo, she creates a temporary home for little Asia, a tiny and fragile space of protection in a marginal zone of the city as well as of Italian society, which itself knows no public protection. LITTLE GIRL is a film made with amateur actors that tells of courage and turns prejudices on their head.
