Italian actress Valeria Golino crosses over to the director’s chair in this character study of a mysterious young woman, Miele (Jasmine Trinca from "The Best of Youth"), committed to helping the terminally ill end their suffering (very much illegal in Italy). No matter how emotionally wrought her clients or their loved ones may be, Miele is the ultimate professional – so much so that she almost seems detached.

Despite her sweet code name (“Honey” in English), everything about this unlikely assassin is minimized. Her beauty is downplayed to the point where she is nearly gender neutral - apart from some quick sex played out in a car with her part time lover, who slips away from his family for these frantic trysts. A daily morning ocean swim and late night bike ride home betray an intense energy lurking beneath the still surface, but in public she is so contained she’s almost invisible.

Then the uncompromising directness of a new client sends shockwaves through the concrete façade Miele so carefully projects.

“Impressively nuanced… assured…elegant, beautifully composed visuals.”
- Jay Weissberg
