Set in the Sicily of our days, the film is about the meeting and love story between a man in his forties, who works in civil rights projects for African children, and two twins very close to each other, one is an actress, the other is an art dealer.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
The movie aims to deal with the themes of the double, of theatre and life, of truth and falsehood, of the twists of fate, of accidental meetings changing our lives, of the mistery linking two people, of the search for meaning between the civil engagement and those meetings which change our life and force us to face ourselves.
