Three stories told through the voice of Antonio, a child from Palermo who loves knights and their heroic exploits. He collects traditional Sicilian Puppets called Pupi and knows the “Orlando Furioso” by heart (Ludovico Ariosto's 16th century chivalric poem, considered one of the most influential works in the whole of European literature).
Antonio is a storyteller who introduces the life of three Italian families wounded by the Mafia. In his tales, Mafia victims are not only the people who died, but also those who are left behind. Just like in Ariosto’s Orlando, Antonio shows us that fighting the Mafia is remembering our loved ones by looking at the Moon, where precious things are held.
