Set in 1983 Sicily, Braccio (Claudio Amendola) is a political prisoner who has already served four years of a heavy sentence. He is transferred to San Vittore prison in Milan, where he has a girlfriend nearby. The real purpose of the transfer is to induce him to collaborate—to reveal the names of other terrorists in his network. The task of persuading him to talk is in the hands of a captain of the anti-terrorist military unit who Braccio begins to trust. Questions of solidarity—cause and effect—begin to unfold. The film won two Crolle d’oro awards for best film and best actor and also stars Silvio Orlando, Francesca Neri, and Vincenzo Peluso. In Italian with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
