Inspired by real events, this is a black comedy about 20 years of history of Sicily from 1970s to 1990s, mocking Mafia Bosses and restoring the generosity of the heroes of Antimafia.
The film is focused on Arturo, a young boy who grows up in Palermo and tries to conquer his beloved Flora. The director explains his fascination with the subject: “One day I stopped and looked around. And that’s when I asked myself the question: how can the Mafia enter the lives of people so arrogantly in Palermo and so few say something about it?”
Director: Pierfrancesco Dalberti
