A story about the desire to discover one's place in society, sometimes at a blood price. Marcello hasn't been able to fit in since childhood. He cannot confide his innermost feelings to his friends and loved ones - the thrill that overwhelms him at the sight of death and killing. He finds neither punishment, absolution, nor understanding from them; he is surrounded only by the carelessness of those around him. In his loneliness, he desires only one thing - to be like others and to share the same feelings with them. He has been failing to do so for years... Suddenly, however, times change, and as history unfolds, the social spotlight is thrust upon a group into which Marcello fits perfectly; a group in which the darkness within him becomes the norm and the fascination with killing is a valuable virtue. Marcello can finally feel like a valid member of society. And he would do anything for those who made it possible for him to do so.
