Film Fest Gent - Il Ladro di bambini

While escorting two children from Milan to an orphanage in Sicily, a young police officer named Antonio (Enrico Lo Verso) slowly befriends the siblings. Without a parental figure after the arrest of their mother, young Rosetta (Valentina Scalici) and her brother, Luciano (Giuseppe Ieracitano), are bitter about their situation, but Antonio gradually wins them over, and a surprisingly moving connection forms between the cop and his youthful companions.
