Synopsis: Freaks Out is the story of four friends – Matilde (Aurora Giovinazzo), Cencio (Pietro Castellitto), Fulvio (Claudio Santamaria) and Mario (Giancarlo Martini)- who are as tight as brothers. It’s 1943: Rome is being bombarded, both by the Nazis and the Allies. The four characters work in a circus managed by Israel (Giorgio Tirabassi). He is the boss; however, he looks more like a father figure to them all. While looking for an escape route to get us far awayfrom the conflict, Israel mysteriously dissapear, leaving the four friends by themselves, with no prospective. Matilde, Cencio Fulvio and maria are suddenly left alone, the circus being the only thing they’d had which reminded them of safety and family. With Israel and the circus tent gone, they are but freaks, devoid of any life goal and stuck in an Eternal City falling under the bob blows.
