"When I woke up, the nightmare began." So begins the story of Adriano Doria (Riccardo Scamarcio), a very successful forty-year-old businessman, who wakes up one morning in a mountain hotel room next to a dead body. The lifeless body belongs to his young mistress, the charming photographer Laura (Miriam Leone, At War for Love, IFF 2018). Though he protests his innocence, Adriano is the obvious prime suspect. He commissions the notoriously tough attorney Virginia Ferrara (Maria Paiato), who has never lost a case, to plan his defense strategy. With the emergence of a key witness and just hours to go before his interrogation that could definitively condemn him, Adriano is forced to tell the whole truth.

DIRECTOR Stefano Mordini was born in Marradi (Firenze) in 1968. Since 1990 he has been working first as an executive producer and then as a director. His films have won several awards at major Italian and international festivals and in 1996 he participated in Venice with the short film I Ladri. In 2000 he shot the documentaries Paz '77 and Arbitri and then made a series of documentaries on the theme of globalization, including L'allievo modello (2002), chosen at the Independent Film Festival in Buenos Aires. In 2004 he wrote and directed his first feature film, Provincia meccanica (2005), which was presented in competition at the Berlin International Film Festival.

In 2016 he presented (Un Certain Regard) Pericle il nero at the Cannes Film Festival, based on the novel of the same name by Giuseppe Ferrandino and starring Riccardo Scamarcio. The Invisible Witness, is his fourth feature film.
