Movie Info

This intriguing and ambiguous low-budget Italian sci-fi mystery tells the story of a translator who is given a very unusual assignment. Gaia makes her living translating Chinese into Italian. Her latest job offer is a lucrative one, though it quickly becomes apparent that it won't be a run-of-the-mill movie translation this time around, as she's blindfolded and taken to an undisclosed location in the Italian capital. Her curiosity deepens as she's placed in a completely dark room and instructed to act as the intermediary between her employers and whoever else is in the room. As soon as the assignment begins it's apparent that she's now facilitating a harsh interrogation rather than an interview. But whatever she may have thought was going on cannot possibly prepare her for the eventual discovery of who she is actually talking to. And that's just the first of the shocking challenges to her world view... With Ennio Fantastichini as the government agent and Li Yong as the voice of Wang.
