Cora, a 19-year-old girl, has just returned to Bucco, the place where she spent her childhood. Together with her father Michele, the mayor, and her grandmother, they work to organize the important celebration of the Virgin of Bucco, an annual event which attracts numerous tourists and pilgrims. But the arrival of a mysterious man gradually upsets the harmony of the village, causing certain dark events from the past to resurface.
A story of the sense of belonging, the refusal of guilt, the weight of lies and their aftermath.
