Saro and Salvuccio are brothers, a priest and a mafioso. They have been silent for years because of necessity until one day one can no longer pretend not to know what he knows and needs to rebel.
The story is dedicated to Don Pino Puglisi, a priest killed by the Mafia. Giuseppe "Pino" Puglisi (1937 1993) was a Roman Catholic priest in the rough Palermo neighborhood of Brancaccio. He openly challenged the Mafia who controlled the neighborhood and was killed by them on his 56th birthday.
