The Double Hour

by Giuseppe Capotondi

Synopsis

Sonia comes from Ljubljana and works as a waitress in a hotel. Guido is a former policeman and works as watchman in a villa outside the city.
They meet at a speed date. He is a regular customer of the place. For her, it is the first time and it shows. A few words and an instinctive attraction.
In a few days, they learn to know each other, to open up their hearts and to disclose their wounds. They are on the brink of falling in love… when Guido dies.
All of a sudden, during a robbery at the villa where he works. Sonia is alone trying to overcome this meaningless loss with somebody who thinks she is partly responsible for Guido’s death. As Sonia’s past resurfaces with all its secrets, the surrounding reality starts to tremble up to the point of collapsing on her. Everything begins to change,  all certainties crumble and nobody is the same any longer.
Neither Sonia. But who is she in reality?
And above all, the man she continues to see is – beyond any plausible logic - Guido,  or is she going out of her mind? And what will she do when she will be offered another chance?
All the answers will come at the end, after a series of twists and turns.
