This is the story of Amore e Morte, a tale told in song originally composed and performed by instrumentalist Riccardo Barone (ITALY).

A tale of love and hardship, a deep bond broken by unperceived circumstance.
He is witness to an unfortunate crime, a brutal murder. Both flee their home land to seek refuge in a foreign place. They find peace for a time. But the haunting ghost of witness is still upon them.
He is called back to his country and demanded to give trial, he fears the consequences of his testimony. A writer and an editor, she records his tale in pursuit of writing a prolific exposé.
