Based on the true story of the kidnapping of a 12-year-old boy, held by the Mafia for 779 days in the hopes of silencing his informant father, Sicilian Ghost Story focuses on Luna, a classmate with a crush, who refuses to sweep his disappearance under the rug and challenges the code of silence that prevails amongst the adults.
This search for the missing boy seen through a child’s eye takes us through the Sicilian countryside evoking stories and fables that are familiar to all.
