Fiorella Infascelli’s engrossing drama depicts the remarkable friendship between two men, Judges Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, who were on opposite sides of the political spectrum but united in an effort to bring down the Cosa Nostra. When the duo learn that their families may be in danger, they travel together to an island in Sardinia for a summer that is somewhere between a forced vacation and witness protection.
