THE MARSHAL AND THE MURDERER

A young Swiss art student has been learning pottery in a small pottery town near Florence. One day she goes out there on the bus and never comes back. When her body is found a sexual motive seems probable but there are strange undercurrents in the town, bitter quarrels going back to the days of fascism and the war. The girl's death brings them to the surface and tension reaches a dangerous level which almost costs the marshal his life.
