SYNOPSIS Midnight: a suspended time when anything is possible. Ghosts are back, as well as the past from which one has escaped. In this oblique time Lorenzo, a priest in a nowhere parish, hiddening from himself and his homosexuality, receive the disturbing visit from Saverio. He  suddenly burst into the priest’s room, asking to be confessed by his ex friend and companion. The confession becomes a duel with no winner.
