Fabiana, Carlo, Claudio and Vincenzo are four long-term political activists in the Communist Party at Mercatale, near Florence. For decades, they worked hard in activism supporting party initiatives, struggles and election campaigns. For them, as for many other grass-root activists, «political activism» means first and foremost using their capabilities as active and participative citizens to examine the needs and issues of the community to which they felt they belonged. By a series of meetings recorded over twenty years, the film highlights the main turning points of one of the most important parties of democratic Italy, showing how the initial yearning to work for the good of the community has been changed for the worse by the radical transformations that the Italian political scene has been subjected to. After the P.C.I. - the Italian Communist Party - was dissolved, the four friends make different choices in life.
