Salvatore, detto Padoreddu, assiste allo schianto di un aereo nazista nelle montagne a nord del paese. Affascinato dal velivolo, ruba l’oggetto che lo attrae più di ogni altro: la radio. Ma nella notte, qualcosa di strano accade: la radio comincia a fare strani versi. Fino a pronunciare il suo nome: “Tore”.

Baunei, Sardinia.

A cold autumn in 1942.


One nazist plane crashes into the mountains around a small village in Sardinia. A man, alone, witnesses the accident: Salvatore. He runs through the woodlands, before the night comes, to reach the crash site. When he arrives, something strange has already happened. The pilot has disappeared: a ghost plane. Padoreddu plays with it, he stares at it, he dreads it. He runs away in the night, but before he steals the only object which captures his attention: the radio. Back in the village, he’s teased by his fellows and comes back home, alone.


Overnight, something spooky and unbelievable will happen. The radio will start whispering his name, Padoreddu, just like everybody calls him, and it will wake him up from a terrible dream, where his past tries to come back. And the future will be just as scary as a nightmare. Plane disappeared. Strange things happening in the village. Echoes of a phantom voice follows him, relentlessly, from the dark abyss of some once forgotten events.


Is he turning mad?
