Synopsis

The Wholly Family – Jake, a ten-year-old boy,[1] is on holiday with his bickering parents in Naples. Jake asks them to buy him a Pulcinella figure from a street stall, but they refuse. Jake’s father tells him a piece of local Naples lore:[2] buying a figure for oneself will bring bad luck – good luck can be found only by stealing one. While his parents continue to argue over trivial affairs, Jake sneaks away and attempts to steal the figure. The stall holder catches Jake in the act, and directs him instead towards a series of glass bell jars containing models of the idealised Holy Family. Before Jake can make a purchase, his mother arrives, furious at her son’s disappearance. After another argument with Jake’s father, the family leave to return to their hotel. The stall holder, noticing that Jake has stolen one of the figures, smiles.
