A love triangle, the past invades the present. Mario, a shy man new in Livorno, chats up a crying woman on a bridge. She's Natalia, waiting for a lover gone for a year who promised to return. For three nights, Mario accompanies Natalia, assists her, distracts her, dances with her. He falls in love with her. Can he pull Natalia into his arms, away from the past and from love for a man who will probably never return? Written by
Based on the story by Feodor Dostoyevsky

I swear to you, I'm a new man. Believe me, I'm a new man. I have faith now. I understand it all now, even if I can't explain. You see? I used to think this city was bleak and sad, but it was me! Now it's all shining and bright! We only have to want it. Something inside me just has to want it and the girl I love will become my bride. All dressed in white.
