Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In a well-rounded tale of fatherly love and its sacrifices, (Francesco Nuti) stars as Romeo Casamonica, a thief just released from a five-year prison sentence who returns to his old haunts to look for his wife and son. The neighborhood has changed beyond recognition, his wife is nowhere to be seen, and only after outsmarting a cold-blooded social worker does he find out the truth about his son. The boy has been adopted by a couple living in the mountains. In order to get closer to the eight-year-old Lorenzo, Romeo anonymously insinuates himself into the household and promptly falls for his son's adoptive mother (Ornella Muti). Matters become even more complicated when he sees how happy his son is with his new parents.
