In Naples during the 1920’s: While AMORE TRAGICO is being screened at the cinema, so closely does Michael identify with the story, that he kills his unfaithful wife. In the present: Rosa and her mother are listening to Neapolitan songs that open up a world of romantic fantasies. Rosa’s sister kills her lover the day he marries Teresa, but the two women see him as though he were still alive. There are apparitions of madonnas and the appearance of a new character who brings past and present together.
