Giuseppe has disappeared, and what are you going to do about it? A Sicilian Ghost Story interweaves a dark fairytale of teenage romance with the chilling real-life Mafia abduction of 12-year-old Giuseppe Di Matteo in 1993. Luna goes on a rebellious journey against a code of silence and collusion when her beloved classmate Giuseppe vanishes.

Faced with ingrained communal passivity, Luna’s obsession to find the truth sends her to a dark world of dreams and, as her desperation intensifies, the lines between fantasy and reality continue to blur. Is the strength of her love enough to bring them both back?
