Profondo (Deep)

Leonardo is a fifty-year-old photojournalist. A very reserved man, timid towards his neighbor and now disillusioned with life because of a series of hard failures that have profoundly marked him irreversibly. Moved by very intimate reasons, Leonardo seeks personal redemption. Leonardo wants to realize one last and very important service, the most important of his career and his existence. Arriving in a small seaside village populated almost exclusively by fishermen, Leonardo goes in search of the "Diavolo Rosso" (Red Devil), a legendary marine animal that has inspired local folklore for many years. The animal, real or not, becomes a real obsession for the man as well as the last possibility of redemption towards a life that has never been lived until the end.
