The most daring and provocative writer and director of the time and the world's only leading soprano with the divine voice: Pier Paolo Pasolini and Maria Callas. The film that brought them together was "Medea", in the year 1969. Fifty years later, the story of an unlikely love resurfaces – through the memories and stories of the filmmakers and their dearest friends. An investigation into two sensitive, and at that time fragile, souls who knew how to create such a deep, delicate and special artistic and human relationship.
