Description:Cesarina is the charming and vile wife of Claudio Ruper. Cesarina’s indifferent reaction to the death of her illegitimate child, reveals Claudio her real unfeeling heart and convinces him to cut off all contact with his wife. From that moment on he decides to dedicate his whole life to his work: the construction of a new powerful weapon and to put it at the service of his country. The rumor of this new invention attracts the attention of a potent secret society that instructs a spy, Moncabrè, to seduce Cesarina in order to get the documents of her husband. In a whirlwind of passion and death, events rush towards a tragic end.
