Lavia, La Lupa (The She-Wolf), 1996

Upon his return from military service, the young Nanni Lasca (Raoul Bova) meets and falls in love with Maricchia (Alessia Fugardi). However, Nanni soon discovers that Maricchia's mother (Monica Guerritore) is an infamous seductress known as "La Lupa" ("The She-Wolf"). Even Nanni's plans to marry Maricchia do not put an end to La Lupa's advances. This conflict comes to a climax at the town's feast of Santa Rosalia, the patroness of Palermo.
