The world today looks like inferno: an unjust hell where those who are unlucky – just like the protagonist of the film – are simply unable to find the way out of their misery. Of course, Inferno is by no means an abstract meditation on hell and evil. It addresses concrete social and political situations, in which the world has found itself because of the global capitalist monstrosity. In order to express all the powerlessness that millions of people wake up with every morning, I have only focused on a single story of a young family which only wants to survive.
