Cenerentola was raised in the Megaride, a huge ship stuck in the port of Naples for over 15 years. Her father, the rich ship owner and scientist, died taking to the grave the technological secrets of the ship and the dream for a revival of the port. Since then, the young girl has been living in the shadow of her fearsome stepmother and her six cunning daughters.

The city is now left to decay and its only hope lies in Salvatore Lo Giusto, known as ‘o Re, an ambitious drug trafficker who, plotting with the stepmother, exploits the inheritance of an unaware Cenerentola to turn the port of Naples into a hotbed for laundering. The ship, haunted by hologram-ghosts from a forgotten technology and history, will be the scene of the entire story, putting on display the epic collision between the insignificance of the ambitions of the present and the nobility of the ideals of the past. The future of young Cenerentola and the poor city of Naples hang by the same, thin thread.
