The Butcher

  • User


Alina is married to Daniele, a famous conductor. While Daniele is away, she finds herself attracted to Bruno, a butcher. One day, Bruno left a message… “Tomorrow morning I’ll knock on your door. If you don’t want me, don’t be there.” Next morning Bruno keeps his word. The apartment door is ajar. He finds Alina on a sofa, pale, bathed in sweat, fearful and expectant. While Daniele conducts his final concert in Samarkand, Bruno and Alina make love in every way imaginable… and Alina will never be the same.
