    7 May 1983. Rome. It's a hot afternoon and Mirella Gregori, a young 15-year-old girl leaves the house, telling her mother that she'll be back in a few minutes. From that moment on, all traces of her have been lost. A few days later another 15-year-old girl, Emanuela Orlandi, disappears in the center of Rome, and in the following months many others. The alarm in the country is strong, there is talk of white trafficking. Over the years, investigations have revealed disturbing elements of connection between the various cases, many leading directly to the Pope's entourage, many to pedophilia. Thirty-five years of investigations, of reticence, of denied letters rogatory, have contributed to fueling the climate of mystery and ambiguity that still weighs on the disappearance of Mirella, Emanuela and the others. Today Pietro Orlandi, Emanuela's brother, and Antonietta Gregori, Mirella's sister, are more determined than ever to discover a truth that has remained hidden for too many years. Together they will meet all those who can contribute to tearing the veil of one of the darkest pages in recent Italian history.

    It also includes Alessandro, a one-time photographer with an erratic career and a recovering drug addict. Grandson of a genius, he feels he is not living up to expectations and is convinced that all his relatives feel the same weight: not rising to the levels required by the famous Rossellini surname. At the age of 56, he decides to take on the challenge, as well as improve his precarious finances, by making this film, forcing everyone to undergo family therapy under the scrutiny of an unforgiving lens.
