Just a few days after being transferred for disciplinary reasons from Bologna to Sassari, Sardinia, Lieutenant Giorgio Roversi finds a dead man in a cave, with a severed ear. Inquiring about the homicide with the help of local people – who will become new friends or even something more – Roversi will discover a mysterious world made on ancestral rules handed down for centuries throughout generations in the deep heart of the island.
