Antonio and Emma have been separated for years, but he does not accept when Emma dates other men. Indeed, Antonio proves obsessive, aggressive and intrusive, and again threatens Emma to hurt the children: little Kevin, shy and introverted, and the adolescent Valentina. Emma tolerates the harassment of Antonio, and the situation seems to recover. However one evening Antonio asks his ex-wife to entrust him with their children for an evening at a pizzeria. Antonio has a diabolical plan, and when he returns home with Kevin and Valentina, he pulls out a gun and shoots both of his children, and finally commits suicide. Emma rushes desperately to them, and discovers that her daughter is still alive.
