“A Barren Path” (Original title: "Incappucciati, Foschi") is a thriller with western overtones, set during the 1970s in the Italian region of Sardinia. Clotilde and Mondino are a couple driving through the mountainous centre of the Italian island of Sardinia, at the height of the paranoia-charged era in Italian history known as the “Years of Led”. They are driving towards Nuoro, where they are to deliver a car that belongs to Mondino’s employer. But during this fateful journey, along dark and treacherous roads, they encounter a group of bandits and kidnappers, coming face to face with the terrifying reality of the time.
