This documentary is about the real Mafia, the historic, violent Sicilian gang that has flourished in Italy and the U.S. for more than a century, leaving bloody havoc in its wake. The focus is on the Cosa Nostra as a powerful amoral corporate entity, intimately enmeshed with Italian business and politics, and on 2 brave, unshakably honest prosecutors, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, who battled them in the courts for years, winning hundreds of convictions, before both were assassinated. Director Marco Turco shows the reality of similar relationships in Italy, and indicts the conservative Italian establishment for its tolerance of criminals who trample on laws and lives.
