Synopsis

Nowadays. The day before his retirement Judge Saracini (Donald Sutherland) under the threat of a gun receives an envelope with an old 8mm film. The film shows the cold blooded killing of five men and the abduction of another. It is previously unknown footage of the kidnapping of the President of the Italian Christian Democratic party Aldo Moro and the brutal murder of his escort in Rome on March 16th, 1978.

With the help of his ex pupil Fernanda Doni (Stefania Rocca), now a judge herself, and Branco (Giancarlo Giannini), his old time friend and personal escort, Saracini starts a personal investigation that takes him and his friends into a conspiracy that goes up to the highest levels of Italian and International political powers.

High risks are taken and dangerous grounds are walked upon. The peril reaches its peak with the accident that kills Judge Doni's husband.

Now eventually caught in that web of power, Judge Saracini receives an invitation he cannot refuse. The summons will end the private enquiry and leave the public enigma still a mystery.
