SYNOPSIS

Rosalba loves Danilo, who is serving 30 years in prison. In order to lighten the burden of his imprisonment she writes him everyday a letter, tender, passionate, lyrical, thanks to the help of Katia, her best friend, who thus becomes her “prompter of love”. This game soon appears dangerous, for Katia. Those emotions, those bursts of poetry, designed for Rosalba, over time belong to her as well as she believes that the passionate responses from Danilo are for her. When Rosalba and Danilo split up, Katia decides to go to the prison and meet him and to use any means in order to get the permit…
