It binds them together in complicit silence, causing a buzzing in his head when he thinks about it. The boy becomes finally clear and light when Tullio surprises his son, whos been ill, by returning early for a holiday vacation and bringing to a head the familys collusion about Elisa as the two sit among m̌igr ̌workers by the Christmas bonfire burning memories . . . . in a collective reckoning up.

Hora è un luogo dell'anima, un paese in cui, come nella Macondo di Márquez, il tempo, i fatti, le persone sono avvolti in un'atmosfera magica e misteriosa. Ma è anche un luogo concreto, un paese della Calabria dove vive un'antica comunità arbëreshe. È qui che cresce Costantino Avati, protagonista di questa saga familiare. Attorno al ragazzo ci sono tanti, indimenticabili personaggi: il padre, impetuoso e malinconico, emigrato in Germania; la madre, custode di un segreto rovello; le sorelle con le loro tormentate storie d'amore; la romana Isabella, che fa palpitare il cuore adolescente di Costantino; il maestro forestiero, cacciatore di sogni e ricordi; e soprattutto il nonno, ironico e saggio, ultimo depositario di un'epoca che va scomparendo
