This documentary art film explores ideas of the collective body in the former home town of The Emperor Nero. It meditates on the role of memory and identity in the specific localities of Anzio and Nettuno, Italy. The collective body begins to reveal itself through the ritualistic act of making moulds from the fingers of some of the people who find themselves living there.
