A small mountain village in 1970’s Italy. Pietro, a child raised by his widower father, a surly man with money problems, begins to manifest mysterious gifts: he can bend metal simply by touching it. A parapsychologist starts studying him. The experiments will lead the child into contact with the invisible world, where the laws of physics give way to the deepest desires.
