Authentic, engaging film about the life of a young sex worker in the woods around Rome. She enters into a romantic relationship with a mushroom-picker. But his need to rescue the Princess gets in the way of their happiness. Based on real events.
Princess is a nineteen-year-old illegal immigrant in Italy. She lives with others in the same position in a suburb of Rome. They are a real family, joking, hugging and quarrelling together – but once they are out working in the woods between Rome and Ostia, they are on their own. Every day, Princess roams the woods looking for walkers or motorists willing to pay her for sex.
