Cinderella has grown within the Megaride, a huge ship that has been stranded in the port of Naples for over 15 years. After the violent death of her father, the ship’s owner and inventor, Cinderella was left under the protection of her formidable stepmother and her six, mean step-siblings. The city, now in decay, entrusts its remaining hopes to Salvatore Lo Giusto, aka The King, an ambitious drug dealer who exploits the heritage of the unaware Cinderella to make of the port of Naples a money laundering capital.
The ship, haunted by holograms ghosts of a far forgotten history and technology, will become the stage of the whole story and of an epochal battle between the poverty of ambition of the present versus the nobility of the ideals of the past. The future of young Cinderella and the poor city of Naples are connected to to the same, very thin line.
