Synopsis: “What he had before him was the product of a sickly feeling, that collapsed the more rational side of his brain and clouded his judgment and the ability to think for himself, turning him into a puppet in the hands of that woman. ‘Like a sunflower,’ he said to himself, ‘condemned to the end of his days to follow the sun’s movements, the source of life; the same sun that after several weeks she will deprive him of, scorching him.’”
Laid off of work without pay, the ex-police commissioner Manuel Bianquetti is forced to sell his services as a private eye for cheap, till he receives an apparently simple assignment: protect an important businessman during his stay in the city.
However, what appears like a routine job turns out to be a trail of deaths that force Bianquetti to give free reign to his private eye instincts in order to survive, leading him to discover that, often, the sun that heats the most is also that which burns the most.
