From the prison in Civitavecchia, 4 detainees leave for 48 hours on a special furlough: Rossana, 25, rich and a rebel arrested at the airport for cocaine traffic; the fifty-year-old Luigi, condemned for a double murder that has already kept him 17 years behind bars; Angelo, a twenty-five-year-old in prison for a robbery with accomplices he never denounced; Donato, 35, condemned while being innocent. The two days will be used by each of them to try to fit and find again the reality they have left for a long time. The Furlough is an ensemble movie, it is the story of four inmates during their 48 hours furlough, of their reality and how it has brought them behind bars. The characters are described with realism, with their contradictions, their desperation, the constant temptation of an escape, but the cornerstone of the movie is the sincerity of the positive feelings of each and every one of them: the love of a father for his son, the love for a woman, for friends, and most of all the pursuit of a lost (if ever had) personal dignity and pride. Four characters of different ages and extractions, three men and a woman: Luigi, Donato, Rossana and Angelo.
