    • Synopsis
    • “The Temptation of St. Tony” tells the story of a man (Tony) in Eastern Europe - the new century where wolf-like laws and wolf-like appetite is raging. Tony, finds himself in exactly the kind of darkening forest that Dante describes. An unusual problem intrudes in his prosperous and quiet life – morality. Is it possible to be a “good person”? What does that mean anyway? And what’s in it for you?
      On his journey towards a clearer conscience, Tony lives through exiting adventures in an increasingly complex reality but not without some diverting humor. And it starts to seem that slowly, and quite inevitably, the man loses his job, his family, and finally reality, itself. Compassion incurs capital loss.
