Walter Presents – which showcases the best foreign language drama series from around the world – continues with this fact-based crime thriller set in Palermo in 1993. This is a city soaked in blood as a war between the state and the Mafia is escalating while, within the local mob, two rival bosses fight it out for dominance. A young magistrate, Saverio Barone, is brimming with ambition allied to a strong sense of duty, and as one of the first shots in his personal share of the war, he is determined to denounce his boss, Salvatore Dona, as he is convinced that Dona is colluding with the Mafia. At the same time, Tony Calvaruso, recently released from prison, is trying out for a new job as the personal driver of Leoluca Bagarella, ‘Don Luchino’, the boss of the military wing of the Corleone Mafia. Saverio and Tony’s lives run parallel at a time when the Mafia top ranks feel increasingly threatened by the phenomenon of their own men collaborating with justice. Starring Francesco Montanari, Miriam Dalmazio, David Coco, Roberta Caronia, Paolo Briguglia, Edoardo Pesce, Francesco Foti, Claudio Castrogiovanni, Marco Rossetti, and Selene Caramazza.
