Italy 2014

What do we mean when we talk about "The State-Mafia Pact"? About the concessions given on behalf of the State to the Mafia in exchange for an end to bloodshed? Who exactly is culpable for the assassination of Falcone and Borsellino? What do we know about the endless coexistence of Mafia and Politics? Between the Mafia and the Catholic Church? Between the Mafia and the Police? Or is there more? A group of actors bring to life the most relevant episodes of the sequence of events known as "The State-Mafia Pact" (Trattativa Stato - Mafia) that is supposed to reveal the truth about alleged negotiations between the Italian government and the Mafia. The actors impersonate Mafia, secret service agents, other officials, magistrates, victims, assassins, Freemasons, people who are honest and brave and people who are brave up to a point... And so one of the most intricate events of our time is brought to life in this passionate film.
