Forgiveness is a fake feeling. Only absolution or condemnation exist in love.
Rimini. A forty-year-old postcard addressed to a woman turns on Franco's curiosity. A few words that warn of a presumable threat and the signature, hidden under a dark stain, are the initial elements of a long and complex path of research. The end of his relationship with Luciana, the woman he has loved for ten years, will induce him to jump on this investigation in the hope that it is a distraction sufficient to ward off suffering for that detachment. The postcard will become the only thread that will keep him attached to the illusory hope of finding himself. The reality will be confused with delirium. This will be followed by real or fictitious clues between islands such as Stromboli and Pantelleria, and cities like Paris, destinations of his research, but also of his escape. The trips will intertwine with memories of places visited with Luciana. When he has the certainty of having reached the solution, it will be the moment when he will be further away.
