Antonio Tibaldi directed this drama set off the Georgia coast on remote Dolphin Island, where young Italian Stefano Mauri (Stefano Dionisi) mysteriously arrives out of the blue one day, promptly finding work as a handyman at a rundown motel, although he never explains just who he is, where he came from, or why he landed on Dolphin Island. The motel's laundress is the attractive Claudine Van Doozen (Christina Applegate). Subject to major mood swings and occasional erratic behavior, Claudine moonlights as a dance hostess in the evenings. Amid the coastal splendor, Stefano and Claudine fall into a riddle of a relationship, explored with enigmatic twists and turns. The screenplay by director Tibaldi and Heidi Hall is based on Hall's short story, The Magnificent Rescue. Shown at the 1998 L.A. Independent Film Festival.
