A first-class detective, a charming woman who tends to attract and use men with the attitude of a queen bee, a young colleague asking troublesome questions, the first symptoms of the illness: in San Telesforo Jonico summer will be hot. Gori Misticò is back in Calabria, he decided to leave Milano even if he was at the peak of his career. But going home, in little San Telesforo Jonico, means meeting up with memories: the more you run away the more they are tenacious. And the fine sand of Pàparo beach burns more than alcohol on a wound.
