Aida and Saro are very much in love. She is a beautiful and capricious supermarket cashier who dreams of a better life. He is a smooth talking and charming Sicilian “businessman” with a weakness for expensive sport cars and gorgeous women.
Aida gets off work expecting Saro to be waiting for her usual. Instead there’s a young man leaning against a shiny black limo. His name is Niria and Saro sent him to drive her down to Sicily. She embarks on a dream journey, at the wheel Niria can’t help notice his stunning passenger , yet he remains on his best behaviour.
When they finally arrive, Saro introduces her to his cousin Mara, a proud and sultry Sicilian. There is no real hostility between the two women, just a trace of reserve and diffidence.
Saro , squanders money, showers Aida with gifts and parades her proudly to family and friends.
But their fairy- tale has a short life. When Saro doesn’t return home after a few days, the first to be alarmed is Mara. She suspects foul play and the two women start inquiring around town only to find stony silence.
Saro’s car , with traces of blood in it, is found abandoned in the countryside. Once separated by jealousy, the two women are now united by the same desire, to find their beloved Saro. They decide to locate Niria, who was the last person to see Saro alive. The only weapon they possess is the power of seduction. With the help of Mara, Aida easily lures the young man into the house and onto the bridal bed.
Not able to resist her loveliness , his face contorted in ecstasy, Niria confesses to have killed Saro for his love for her. He collapses by her side, his death sentence sealed.
That same night , the two women bundle Niria’s inert body into the car and dump it in mafia territory. Two “ widows “ and yet another crime attributed to organized crime.
