Il Futuro (The Future)
When their parents die, Bianca starts to smoke and Tomas is still a virgin. The orphans explore the dangerous streets of adulthood until Bianca finds Maciste, a retired Mr. Universe, and enters his dark mansion in search of a future.
Narrated from the future, Bianca tells how she and her brother, Tomas, are orphaned after their parents die in a car accident. Being the children of Chilean immigrants, they have no family in Italy where the accident occurred. A bureaucratic problem prevents them from accessing their mother's pension, so they will only receive funds from their father's account. Bianca, old enough to become her brother's guardian, becomes an apprentice at a hair salon, though the owner will not allow her to become a hairdresser until she has three years of experience. Tomas, who believes that accidents cause supernatural change to reality, shifts his interest from computers to bodybuilding, and he begins to skip school to hang out at a local gym, where he takes a job as an unpaid intern.
Two local personal trainers from the gym befriend Tomas and teach him how access subscription pornographic content for free. After Tomas invites them to the house, Bianca allows them to stay overnight, as they have nowhere else to stay. They ingratiate themselves into the household by cleaning and cooking, and they eventually begin to have sex with Bianca. Eventually, they approach her with a plan: seduce and rob a retired actor and bodybuilder who is rumored to have hidden his wealth in his decaying mansion. Nicknamed Maciste after his most popular character, he has become reclusive and only sees prostitutes. The personal trainers believe Bianca perfect for the part, as she is young, pretty, and can speak English.
Bianca soon learns that Maciste is blind. Although she does not back out, she and Tomas become annoyed that the personal trainers did not explain this fact. Bianca and Maciste meet several more times, and they engage in many conversations. Although the personal trainers warn her to avoid asking Maciste about how he lost his vision, Bianca insists that he would never hurt her. They become concerned that she has come to develop feelings for Maciste and urge her to move forward with the plan. Maciste reveals to Bianca that he lost his vision in a car accident; when she asks if he was driving the car, he refuses to answer. They grow closer emotionally, and Bianca becomes more confident and assertive. Bianca admits to Maciste that she has fallen in love with him, but he says that he feels nothing for her. Upset that her feelings are unrequited, she leaves in tears.
After a competition at the gym goes poorly, the personal trainers again urge Bianca to steal Maciste's money. On her next visit, Maciste is sick and does not want to have sex with her. Instead, she cares for him, and, when he falls asleep, she pickpockets his keys. Bianca looks in a locked room but finds no evidence of a hidden fortune. As she leaves the mansion, Maciste calls for her to stay, but she politely declines. Maciste leaves his mansion and wanders into the street after her, but she continues on her way. When she arrives at her apartment, she demands that the personal trainers leave. Although she fears for the worst, she says that she does not find any news reports about Maciste in the papers.
