Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In yet another 1980s film on Italian radicals, Marco (Saverio Marconi) is a young man determined to leave his terrorist past behind him -- mainly because he is being hunted by a former companion out to silence him for good -- and he finds shelter with a wise elderly farmer addicted to reading Virgil. Between the old man, a friendly schoolteacher, Virgil, and the sheep, the terrorist begins to see the virtues of a peaceful life -- but will his change of heart matter at all to the determined woman hunting him down? The farming landscape of stone cottages and grazing animals adds the most colorful component to this otherwise routine chase story.
