A hit man for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo is solitary, cold and
ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate a man, he
discovers Rita, a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by
while her brother is assassinated. Salvo tries to close those
disturbing eyes, staring at him yet unseeing. Something
impossible happens. Rita’s eyes see for the first time. Salvo
decides to spare her life.
From then on, these two beings, both haunted by the world
they belong to, are linked to each other forever.
