Claudio is 35 years old, works as a bank manager and is hiv positive since ten years. He has a relationship with Dario and lives with him. His days are inevitably marked by the medicines, his checkups at the hospital and his work. One night Claudio meets Andrea. Claudio realizes he has a particular attraction for him. There is a hidden aspect of Andrea’s personality which induces Claudio to keep a distance from him - then he abandons himself and all the rules and restrictions which set the pattern of his life become superfluous. For a while, Claudio experiences a carefree way of living. But fear slowly insinuates into Claudio’s mind and returns him to reality. This is Andrea’s mystery…the constant challenging of rules which are fundamental for Claudio. For at least a year Claudio has no news of Andrea. His life is back to normal, he lives alone in another city and has a different job. The news of Andrea’s death is casual and sudden, and leaves Claudio with unanswered questions.
