Twelve students from Bologna’s writing school Bottega Finzioni, in the ancient village of Iano on the hills of Sasso Marconi. Jana is a forty-six-year old woman who has worked as a prostitute for the last eleven years. Body and money: those are the elements from which the story begins. The participants are immediately captivated, while Jana’s mischievous and reassuring presence encourages the students to put themselves in the spotlight.
