The true story of 17-year-old Sicilian Rita Atria (Veronica D'Agostino) -- who broke the Sicilian Mafia's code of silence and testified against the "family business" after both her father and then her brother are both murdered -- is brought to vivid life in Marco Amenta's hard-hitting and wonderfully acted drama.

Directed by Marco Amenta and stars Veronica D'Agostino and Gerard Jugnot with Marcello Mazzarella, Francesco Casisa, Primo Reggiani, Paolo Briguglia and Mario Pupella.

The writers include Marco Amenta and Sergio Donati. The movie was produced by Raphael Berdugo, Tilde Corsi, Gianni Romoli, Simonetta Amenta and Marco Amenta.
