A henchman for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo is solitary, cold and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate someone from a rival Mafia clan, he discovers Rita, a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by while her brother is assassinated. When Salvo decides to spare her life, something extraordinary happens. From then on, these two beings - both haunted by the world they belong to - are linked together forever.
Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza have worked as writers, development and acquisition consultants for major Italian production companies, such as Fandango and Filmauro of Aurelio De Laurentiis. Salvo, their debut feature film project, was selected for Berlinale Talent Campus, Binger Filmlab and awarded a special mention by the Jury of the Solinas Prize.
