Based on the chilling real-life Mafia abduction of 12-year-old Giuseppe Di Matteo in 1993, Antonio Piazza and Fabio Grassadonia’s Sicilian Ghost Story is a dark fairy tale of teenage romance set in a small Sicilian village at the edge of a forest. Luna has a crush on her classmate Giuseppe, the son of a man with Mafia connections and when Giuseppe mysteriously vanishes, she refuses to sweep his disappearance under the rug. A near-mythological tale of adolescent innocence vs painful reality, the film revolves around its determined protagonist who rebels admiringly against the code of silence, fear and collusion that surrounds her small Sicilian town.
