Italy is under attack. The invader is not a foreign country. The enemy does not have an easily recognizable face, but his presence is now so strong and profound that it is almost considered an ally by the Italian Government.
Is the legalized gambling, a perfect machine that works on several levels, and that the last year has taken from Italians 100 billion euro. It sucked, but spontaneously. Because it is not just a matter of money. It looks like a invisible and voluntary tax, a mob tax.
The invasion develops economically, but also territorial, political, social, media and cultural. It 'a vicious cycle, which involves all of these aspects and modifies them for the maximum end: profit. But a profit of a few, in contrast to the suffering and poverty of many, too many. Why undoubtedly the only sure way to gain accurate and with gambling is only one: to handle it. And it is also impossible to understand how the invasion of legal gambling has transformed and changed the politics, society, economics, mass communication and culture, without telling a slice of Italy last twenty years. And this is the goal of our film!
