In the small Sicilian village of Pietrammare, the election of the new mayor is approaching. The town has been lead for many years by the crooked Gaetano Patanè who is ready to use all deceptions to win again and keep his power. The people are used to the wheeling and dealing of the politics and go with the flow, but this time the mayor’s opponent is Pierpaolo Natoli, a 50-year-old straight-arrow honest professor, at his first political experience and full of courage and ideals. Against all odds, Pierpaolo wins, and immediately gives start to a new age of legality and respect for the rules in town. Would the citizens of Pietrammare be ready for that?
