Nicola, a successful actor, agrees to play Lucio Fulci in a biopic dedicated to the director. The actor begins a journey to discover Fulci man, so that he can interpret it in the best way.

Nicola, divided between the preparation of the film and the study of the character, will deeply question the true nature of a man who, already in life, had rewritten his biography.
A biography in which myth, creation and legend have rewritten an exhilarating and dramatic life.
