Based on Italy’s late 60es true events, Italian poet, playwright and director Aldo Braibanti is prosecuted and sentenced to prison for the love he shares with his barely of age pupil and friend, Ettore. Amidst a chorus of voices of accusers, supporters and a largely hypocritical public, a single committed journalist takes on the task of piecing together the truth, between secrecy and
desire, facing suspicion and censorship in the process.
