In a hunting cabin, a group of elderly local men recall the life of Mario “de’ Marcella,” a man who for over sixty years lived a life of seclusion in a tufa cave. The hunters, who would occasionally encounter him out in the wilderness, refer to him as “il Solengo,” like the male boar cut off from the herd. No one knows for sure what lead this curt and eccentric man to lead such a solitary existence, but the hunters elaborate and their often conflicting stories paint a vivid portrait of this enigmatic local legend, all set against a backdrop of the stunning Italian countryside.
