Andrew Caruso has been a second-hand book dealer in Rome for thirty years when a collection of thirty-year-old photographs changes his life forever. He finds the photos when clearing up the possessions of his ex-lover, Michel; the images - possibly from police archives - are fascinating, but when Andrew and his artist friend Daniela decide to launch an exhibition, the police raid the shop the day before the opening, seizing the display with surprising violence.
