Mario’s undiscovered talents and passionate
heart never had reason to show themselves. His life on a quiet
Italian island has been simple, carved out for him as it was
by his fisherman father. But when renowned poet Pablo Neruda
is sentenced to political exile there, Mario takes the job
of delivering his daily fan mail and gradually becomes friends
with the famous man. Neruda introduces Mario to poetry and
helps him win the heart of a local beauty that had never given
Mario a second thought.
Notice the tenderness in the relationship between
Mario and Neruda, as well as the authenticity that Mario displayed.
Also, watch how Mario discovers his passion for poetry and
how he and Pablo Neruda are true to their passions.
