Carlo and Silvia have been married for more than 20 years. He has a young partner, and he lives with her, while his wife lives in their Roman home, in the Parioli district, and Carlo only passes by every so often. There’s a strong affection and deep understanding between the two of them, but when Silvia finds herself a lover, who’s young and violent, the situation comes to a head and for Carlo, it means the start of an obsession.
From the book of the same name by Goffredo Parise.
