A chancer is hired by a father to bring back to the US his errant son. Once this opportunity for quick money fails, he takes a much more dangerous path leading to murder and impersonation. A remake of Plein Soleil (1960) based on a book by Patricia Highsmith.

This is just an excerpt from the many locations in this homage to Highsmith and the glories of Italy, so a work in progress if you will. SJ
