Rome, July 1947. On the Appian Way a small girl finds the brutalized body of a young woman. Forty-year-old detective Achille De Santis is put on the case. Set in a poor and hungry post-war Rome, the investigation leads unexpectedly to an illegal expatriation organization. Although fictional, the story reveals a surprising criminal connection existing at the time between Italy and Argentina. This dramatic story is told with a mixture of languages and dialects, hidden and stolen identities and characters whose strength is drawn from the pain of powerful sentiment.
