Set in a little Sicilian village at the edge of a forest, this is a story of adolescent innocence and painful reality. 13-year-old Giuseppe is the son of a man with mafia connections who has now turned informer. One day, Giuseppe vanishes, kidnapped by those his father crossed. Luna, his classmate, refuses to accept his mysterious disappearance and she petitions the townsfolk to find him but to no avail. Rebelling against the code of silence and collusion that surrounds her, Luna refuses to give up her search, desperate to find the boy she so bashfully loves.
