A treacherous stretch of highway, coined Street of Death after the many young lives lost performing motorcycle stunts, separates the area from the dazzling Mediterranean sea. Street of Death draws a raw and intimate portrait of a neighborhood through the stories of five inhabitants, weaving the past and present, and inviting a re-examination of our relationship to the turmoil of adolescence: Do we ever really leave that very first place of precarious living and inflated dreams, or does its resonance ever truly leave us?
