Something sinister lurks beneath the surface of ten-year-old Michele's (Giuseppe Cristiano) idyllic summer in 1978. While the days in his remote southern Italian village are filled with the familiar routines and joys of childhood, a chance discovery leads to a shocking revelation: a boy imprisoned in a mysterious hole. Desperately intrigued, Michele digs further to discover that his own parents may be implicated in what's quickly becoming the country's most nefarious kidnapping. Directed by Gabriele Salvatores (Mediterraneo). (Fully subtitled) Official Web Site
