Naples in Veils

During a Neapolitan ceremony involving femminielli at her aunt's house, medical examiner Adriana (Giovanna Mezzogiorno) is seduced by a handsome young man, Andrea (Alessandro Borghi). The two spend a sex-filled night at her place. Andrea asks Adriana to meet again later that afternoon, but he disappoints her by not showing up for the date. The following day, Adriana discovers that the young man on whom she is carrying out a post-mortem examination is Andrea, who has been murdered. Additionally, Adriana finds out from police inspectors that Andrea had taken pictures of her naked after they had sex. Soon after, she decides to investigate the circumstances surrounding Andrea's mysterious and brutal death. A man who looks exactly like Andrea, however, seems to repeatedly appear around town whenever Adriana is present.
