A film based on the Neapolitan cult of dead. It is said that these dead people call out in dreams, and sometimes appear in a crowd: the stranger who is staring at you. They want to be acknowledged. So you adopt a skull, one of the thousands of human remains that can be found below the city. This ancient cult that has been practised until recently has left traces, traditions and beliefs.
