Malena is the most charming and irresistible beauty of Castelcuto, a quiet town in the sunny Sicilian coast. She’s new in town and, being her husband in the war, giving each ride becomes a show that is accompanied by the lustful gaze of men and resentful gossip of their envious wives. An army of skinny teenage bike follows you wherever you go, with the sole intention of observing its exquisite and archetypal beauty. But among them is Renato, a boy of thirteen with great imagination that bears his desire to limits of obsessive fantasy.
