Francesca Neri also stars as Lia, the wife of a local businessman who becomes a target in the dangerous game of power that is being played out on the island.

The film begins as Matt arrives on Stromboli, greeted by the brooding and intense Carabinieri chief, Giuseppe Salvatore (played by Stefano Dionisi). Salvatore is not keen to have an outsider snooping around in his town, and he makes it clear to Matt that he would rather he leave. However, Matt is determined to get to the bottom of the case, and he begins to investigate the missing agent's connections on the island.

As he delves deeper into the case, Matt realizes that the island is controlled by a powerful mafia family, led by Don Vincenzo (played by Dominique Sanda). Vincenzo's power extends beyond the island, and he has connections to some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. As Matt tries to unravel the mystery of the missing agent, he discovers that the mafia and the Carabinieri are in cahoots, and the island is a hotbed of corruption and crime.

Against this backdrop, Matt finds himself drawn to Jessie, a woman with secrets of her own. She tries to warn Matt about the danger he is in, but he is too focused on his investigation to pay attention. As he gets closer to the truth, Matt is attacked by unknown assailants, and his life is in peril. He realizes that he is in over his head, and he turns to Jessie for help.

The tension builds to a heart-stopping climax as the truth about the missing agent is finally revealed.

In the end, he chooses to stay and fight, confronting Vincenzo and his men in a brutal final showdown.
