The children of the night – plot of the film broadcast on Rai 5
Giulio, 17, is sent by his mother – leaving for a long business trip – to a boarding school attended by other offspring of rich families, just like him. A sort of “golden prison”, isolated among the Alps, to whom inadequate parents delegate the task of forming the ruling class of tomorrow. In this cold and spooky place, kids are cut off from everything, no visits or outings, even the use of the internet and cell phones is limited to a few minutes a day.
To take care of the class of Giulio is Mathias, an educator who seems to know the wishes and fears of those young people very well. Surviving the strict college rules is tough, Giulio but find a friend, Edward, who may be a little out of his mind, but who seems to be the smartest of them all. The two become inseparable, and together they discover that the rigid security of the boarding school lowers their guard at night; thus begins a series of escapes to a forbidden place in the heart of the woods surrounding the college, a nightclub where Giulio and Edward they know Elenaa young prostitute, whose fate will be indelibly linked to that of the two boys.
The night is a space of freedom and the terrain of new and disturbing experiences for Giulio and Edward, whose trajectories are however attracted by opposite polarities. However, reality soon interrupts the dream flow of these nights that seem to have no end. The boys discover that transgression is part of the educational offer and that the boarding school knows everything about the club and the night outings. Will there be an escape from the future that families and the boarding school are preparing for them?
