synopsis

A henchman for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo is solitary, cold and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate someone from a rival Mafia clan, he discovers Rita, a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by while her brother is assassinated. When Salvo decides to spare her life, something extraordinary happens. From then on, these two beings - both haunted by the world they belong to - are linked together forever.
