Synopsis

After a brilliant career as a fencer, Paolo works as a sports journalist for a local paper. A friend dies of a heart attack. He was an ex-champion like himself, and had become an entrepreneur like many in that rich province. Unexpectedly, Paolo learns that his dead friend has some shadows in his life. Even his death is unclear. For Paolo the search for the truth becomes an intrusion in a hostile but fascinating subtle world, an occasion for unusual meetings. Amongst the main actors there is also Leo, a ten year-old child affected by a form of autism, who indirectly, will help Paolo shed light on his friend Franz’s life and on the circumstances of his death.
