Messina, Sicily, 1958. Members of Italy’s most notorious crime family are assembling at Leonato’s estate. The wasteland of post-war Italy is making way for the seductive Dolce Vita. Life has never been so good. The women are as beautiful as the men are dangerous; image and reputation are everything, style and superficial gratification take centre stage.
But this is Sicily. The grip of honour, patriarchy, gossip and familial ties hasn’t yet loosened. Any slip-up can have very serious consequences indeed.
