Set in Sicily
In Italian with English Subtitles
If there’s no water coming out of the faucets in Palermo, you can bet the Mafia’s behind it. But when a string of murders involving more than Sicilys water suppliers begins to terrorize the residents, the heat is on for the cops to catch the culprits. The man in charge is Angelo Caronia (Riccardo Scamarcio, John Wick, Chapter 2), an arrogant ball-busting cop returning to his hometown after years away in Rome. Angelo’s mission is to wipe up the mess of water and blood spilled by the Mafia, and on a personal level, the return home means reuniting with estranged brother Blasco (Michele Riondino, The Young Montalbano). He immediately butts heads with the members of his new team, whom he feels are lazy and unmotivated. Yet after a while, Angelo learns to love Palermo and to appreciate the openness and generosity of his colleagues. They, in turn, are impressed by the ingenuity and brilliance of their boss who, after so many years, has restored their pride in being cops. The main problem is how to tackle the Mafia a nearly suicidal mission.
