Colpevole di amnesia (Guilty of Amnesia)

Colpevole di amnesia (Guilty of Amnesia)


A case of amnesia which turns into a never-ending nightmare

Pierdante Piccioni is Doctor Amnesia, the head of an emergency room who went into a coma after a car crash in 2013. When he woke up, he realized there was a black hole in his memory that swallowed the past twelve years of his life, bringing him back to 2001. When Piccioni is summoned as a witness in a double murder investigation that happened before he lost his memory, he discovers that he is actually the lead suspect. There is a video of him arguing with the two victims, the young doctor and beautiful  woman he hired as his assistant, and a medical equipment vendor whom he had dealt with during a procurement bid. The video was taken just before they mysteriously disappeared. Too bad that not  Pierdante doesn’t remember even meeting them.
