Summary
As world-weary Lieutenant Chiti spends sleepless nights hunting for the serial rapist terrorizing his city, as 22 years old trainee lawyer Giorgio is befriended by dangerously charismatic Francesco. Giorgio becomes Francesco's pupil and learns to cheat at cards. Slowly the innocent Giorgio is lured into a corrupt world of beautiful women and casual violence. Giorgio enters a world where his own image of himself starts to fragment, revealing someone he no longer recognizes: someone who both scares and attracts him. In parallel, we are given the story of the artistically inclined Lieutenant Chiti of the carabinieri who is investigating a series of brutal rapes in Bari. A shocking dénouement draws together the two strands of the story in a wholly unexpected way and brings a catharsis for both Giorgio and Lieutenant Chiti
