festival & awards:
The battle of a non-Hero in a fight against the Mafia, part victim and part guilty. Leonardo Vitale, a weak, fragile individual whose life in recent years has been marked by contradictions.
He has broken the conspiracy of silence that prevented the judicial system from penetrating the mafia system, shedding light on this closed and impenetrable world.
Betrayed by the mafia, isolated by his friends, twelve years spent between prison and the judicial mental home, undergoing numerous treatments of electroshock to prove his insanity. Leonardo Vitale was killed in 1984, just a few months after having been released from prison.
Adapted from the novel by Salvatore Parlagreco.
