It is said that a wolf roams in the Park of La Favorita in Palermo. No one has ever really seen it. Yet people swear they heard it howling at night. Is it a fantasy? Is it an expression of superstitions and tales? Many stray dogs live in the park. Two sisters take care of them every day. Among the thick branches and crowns, certain people hand secrets out , kids play hide-and-seek, runners pass by and some prostitutes wait for sporadic clients in the sunlight.
At night the scenery changes: tones become more confidential and in the dark intimacy, ife stories, obsessions and memories of those seeking refuge in the park resound among the branches. The inhabitants of this microcosm are gradually revealed and the park is transformed, creating a dimension in which a sometimes crude and bitter reality blends with the fairy tale, where everyone's ghosts, demons and passions are left free, protected and hidden by the trees.
