Pia, a middle aged American woman unexpectedly​ finds out about ​her true origin ​when her ​adoptive ​parents die. ​Deeply moved​ and in the midst of an identity crisis, she decides to travel​ to Southern Italy​ hoping to ​locate her​ ​biological mother​ ​who she​'​​d​ never​ see​n.​ She arrives at Montedoro, a small and remote ​village​; but, what she sees is apocalyptic​: ​the village, resting on a majestic hill, is completely abandoned and nobody seems to live there anymore.​ A​ ghost town​. She runs across a few ​enigmatic people,​ die-hards ​who had never wanted to abandon the village​; they take ​Pia​ ​on a fascinating and magical voyage through time and memory, re-joining the ghosts of​ her own ​unknown past​, intertwining it ​​with her family story and ​of ​that ancient and ​arcane community ​that comes back to life for one last time...
