The age-old conflict between science and faith rages on in the tale of one man’s many possible pasts. Navigate the labyrinth of a damaged memory in this story based on real events.
Sitting at a table in an empty room, a man listens to an interrogation tape, which reveals that he was found in Turin not knowing his own name. He would subsequently be locked away in a psychiatric institution. Characters from his possible past are used to try and find out who he is. Based on a true story from the 1930s that fascinated Italy in the Mussolini era.
