What are 'friends' for...? Why, for murder, terror, extortion, violence and other profitable enterprises!


Set in Sicily, this violent crime drama tells the tale of an Italian cop who heads to a small island town to look into the death of a construction supplier. Once there he is shocked by the influence the Mafia has over the people and even himself.
