On a beautiful island in the Medierranean, Rhino and his gang of thieves take refuge at their painter friend Luce’s sunny villa while hiding 250 kilograms of stolen gold ingots. As the gang begins to meet Luce’s other island guests, love triangles and conflicting interests are revealed, and the idyllic landscape begins to lose some of its outward serenity. When the police trace the stolen gold to the gang’s location, the island devolves from a tranquil retreat to a chaotic battleground. In an homage to 1970s crime films, greed bubbles to the surface, with violent consequences.
