What’s it about?

From renowned director Carmine Elia comes this intriguing Italian crime thriller with a supernatural twist, starring Lino Guanciale (L’allieva), Gabriella Pession (Crossing Lines) and Valentina Romani (Un bacio).

In an industrial building on the outskirts of town, Police Commissioner Cagliostro (Lino Guanciale) takes in the scene before him: a man lies dead on the floor. In his ten-year career he’s seen nothing quite like this. For the dead man is him – he is staring at his own murder scene. A vision of the future stops Cagliostro from exiting this world – he must stay to find his killer, because it is the only way to save the life of his wife, Anna (Gabriella Pession).

With the help of Vanessa (Valentina Romani), a seventeen-year-old who discovers she is clairvoyant, Cagliostro embarks on his unusual investigation – can he sort his friends from his enemies before his premonition comes true, and, at the same time, remedy the mistakes he made while alive?
