Through unedited witnesses and original pictures, an intimate portrait film documentary which tells who was Daphne, who killed her, who was afraid of her voice, and that investigates the reasons of a political murder whose instigators are still in the shadows.
A story by Carlo Bonini and Giuliano Foschini. Written by Diana Ligorio and Emilio Fabio Torsello.
