A hit man for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo is solitary, cold and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate a man, he discovers Rita, a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by while her brother is assassinated. Salvo tries to close those disturbing eyes, staring at him yet unseeing. Something impossible happens. Rita’s eyes see for the first time. Salvo decides to spare her life. From then on these two beings, both haunted by the world they belong to, are linked to each other forever.
