Life is good on the beach at Mondello, a seaside resort on the outskirts of Palermo, Sicily that attracts few foreign tourists but many Italians, who spend their summer in one of the hundreds of little beach houses. They make maximum use of the minimal space inside these huts, furnishing them with cupboards, shelves, lamps, curtains and ornaments. The beach is a microcosm of Italian life, including the financial crisis that the vacationers would prefer to forget about. There are men playing poker, teenagers playing volley ball, middle-aged friends frolicking in the sea like children, and an aspiring politician trying to win votes on the beach. The tone is light, but there's a serious undercurrent.
