The US debut of one of Italy's great contemporary storytellers: The photographer Hans Heumann travels to southern Italy in search of the light that has long attracted artists. There he meets Giorgio Bellusci, who dreams of rebuilding the south's most famous inn. The dark secret behind Giorgio's obsession will change the course of both men's lives.
