Quote:
In a city – with heavy metal music haunting the heroes and the voice of Maria Callas being heard, an aged man, ex-terrorist, who dresses like a woman, the “red Maria”, lives without any law and is hiding in the social shadows as a prostitute and performer, dancing in the streets, old and out-dated dances, for the passersby who give him money.

The boy, alcohol addicted, hears the voice of Maria Callas, speaks with the dead diva, with the mother he misses. Read More »
