The fortuitous finding of an autobiographical manuscript written by Giovanni Pastrone, the most relevant figure of Italian Silent film, prompts a researcher to reopen the historically closed case on the director.
Following the discoveries of unpublished materials and objects mysteriously resurfaced from the past, a strange and amazing new version of the story comes to the light. After having dominated the early phases of Cinema and rewritten its rules for over a decade, Giovanni Pastrone abandons his creature to become a self-taught healer, devoting the rest of his life to Man's antagonistic struggle against Death.
