The true story of Tommaso Buscetta, the "made man" who broke silence and brought down the Cosa Nostra during the deadliest period of the Mafia wars of the early 1980s.

Tommaso Buscetta (Pierfrancesco Favino), a made man, flees to Brazil to wait out an all-out war raging among Sicilian Mafia bosses, only to be forced to watch from afar as his friends and family are killed back in Palermo. Knowing he may be next, Buscetta makes a decision that will change everything. Stunningly realized, legendary director Marco Bellocchio's newest thriller proves he's still a master filmmaker at the top of his game.
