The Arrival of Wang Synopsis

When Chinese-language interpreter Gaia (Francesca Cuttica) is offered a job that pays a fortune, she can't believe her luck. This time, however, is going to be a little different. After being escorted to a secret location in Rome, she is locked inside a pitch-black room where she is asked to interpret the harsh interrogation of the eponymous 'Wang'. Who is Wang and what does he want? Disturbed by the way the interrogation is conducted by the domineering Inspector Curti (Ennio Fantastichini, Loose Cannons), Gaia demands that the lights are switched on. Only upon seeing Wang, does Gaia realise why the job has come with so much mystery and subterfuge. And that she may be in way over her head…
