CGiii Comment

Samp, a professional killer, is hired by a powerful president to kill traditionalists. Samp is a man suffering from psychological disorders that he tries to cure with music. After killing his mother, he roams around the land of Puglia looking for the ideal woman; during his wanderings he meets up people who lead a natural life, characters seeking after their origins and a peculiar musician. Suddenly he falls in love. Not once but several times. With inconsistent women. He kills again and he goes back being a little more human, that humanity that will end up crushing his lust for power.

The filming of began nineteen years ago and ended in 2020. The characters are seen to age along with the authors, while the vitality of the images and colors is castigated in a frame that throbs on the screen.
