Plot summary[edit]

Luigi Di Santo is a respectable teacher in Milan, where he lives his family, with a bad past in Apulia. One day he is called to Mesagne to deal with family problems. One of his three brothers does not want to surrender his farm in the country to a local developer who wants to build a large out-of-town shopping mall on the land. Another of the brothers, Michele, is desperate for his brother to sell the farm, because he has big debts and does not want to compromise his political career. Finally, the third and youngest of the brothers, Aldo, manages a retreat for disabled people in the country, and looks absolutely harmless. On the night of the Good Friday procession, the developer is shot dead in the town square, and people believe the killer is Mario, the owner of the farm, to take revenge. But it is not so, and soon Luigi finds a terrible secret in his family.
