In this off-beat and lively Italian comedy fantasy, a schoolteacher cursed with being the town Goody Two Shoes proves that she too has a darker side after a visit to a travelling carnival. The tale begins in the present during a ceremony designed to honor the courage of one who saved a schoolyard when an old WW II bomb detonated. The situation leading to the tragedy unfolds via flashback and centers on the life of Luna, the long-suffering teacher who suffers from practical jokers, overbearing superiors, and her constantly complaining father. Her life changes when the carnival comes to town and she goes to visit a conjurer who frees her shadow via a magic lantern. Luna's shadow proves to be her opposite and is as mischievous and sexy as Luna is repressed.
