Elio Sorrentino, a dashing 25-year-old from Puglia, is “sun-kissed”. He can sing, make impressions and get people to laugh. In one word, he’s entertaining – so the talent show King for a Night should be his gateway to a dazzling future. But success is a poisoned apple: everything private becomes public; old friends change and grow apart; if you fall, it’s going to hurt bad, especially if there are wounds that haven’t healed. Indeed, Elio was abandoned by his mother when he was only four – and now he’s caught up in an ever-consuming quest for a lost love that has grown too big to be real.
