The little girl disappears and has held all of Italy in suspense since 2004

Four episodes retrace this unsolved drama, which began on the morning of 1 September 2004. Abducted at the age of four while playing under the watchful eye of her grandmother, Denise disappears without a trace.
The series reconstructs the abduction and the family’s endless search for her with incredible access to her parents and the people involved in the case. Straddling the line between documentary and fiction, the narrative is full of twists and turns: the deeper we dig, the more we discover secrets, lies and family conflicts in the great style of southern italian families.
In the background, a very traditional Sicily, between the incompetence of the local police and an almost mafia-like «omertà» that keeps everyone silent. How is it possible for a little girl to disappear in broad daylight, under the gaze of relatives and neighbours? And, if someone saw, why has she remained silent for almost twenty years?
