This retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Marble Faun" brings the myth, mystery and romance of the original to a contemporary Italian setting.
Captivating characters - one with dark secrets - come together in Rome. Ex-patriot journalist Kendall encounters Donatello, a young count who has been cast in a new film; Lili, a glamorous gallery owner with a menacing companion; and Hannah, a former college classmate on a musical mission. Donatello falls in love with Lili, and eventually her troubled past puts all the friends in peril.
When both Lili and Hannah disappear after a dramatic death, Kendall visits Donatello at his Tuscan estate to uncover the truth. There he learns that the young count, who strongly resembles a statue of a faun, may actually be one!
