Martino is the night guardian of the Mole, the Turin Museum
of Cinema. But for him it’s not just a job. From midnight
on he considers himself the master of the place. He
spends his life watching the old silent movies until day
comes, and then retiring to an abandoned office in the
building to spend the rest of the day.
The Angel is a petty thief from the outskirts of the city. He
likes cars and girls. This does not make Amanda, his
girlfriend, very happy. She would like to lead a regular life
and she works hard to leave her tough neighborhood, but
she is afraid she never will.
One day Amanda gets into trouble and, running from the
police, finds shelter in the Mole. Martino and Amanda could
not be more different. He is used to loneliness – and now
he has to share his pad with a girl. On the other hand, she
never thought a dreamland like the Mole could exist.
Slowly, something happens between them. But then it’s time
for the Angel to go find his girlfriend. Their lives tangle up
like one of the silent dramas Martino is so fond of.
