Synopsis

In a land subject to the power of the Camorra, Pasquale, a high fashion tailor, tries to free himself from an underpaid job by contacting the textile entrepreneur Xian. But the Campania underworld does not allow his trafficking to be thwarted and interferes with his plans, as well as with the life of the thirteen-year-old Totò, forced to take a position in a local feud in order to survive in the Scampia neighborhood. The Neapolitan entrepreneur Franco acts on the edge of legality, managing toxic waste disposal trades on behalf of the industries of Northern Italy, silencing the morale of his collaborators for the sake of business. The young Marco and Ciro, on the other hand, want to free themselves from the Camorra strict rules in order to set up their own business, unaware of the treatment that the Casalesi clan reserves for those who dare challenging the system.
