SYNOPSIS
January 6, 1980. The President of the Sicilian Region Piersanti Mattarella is going to
Mass with his family. A young man approaches the car window and shoots
Piersanti in cold blood and kills him. Despite the disorientation of the moment with a series of misdirections towards left
terrorism, the crime appeared anomalous in its modalities. The young Deputy
Attorney on duty that day of the Epiphany will be Pietro Grasso, future Anti-Mafia Attorney and
President of the Senate. The investigations will be continued by the investigating judge Giovanni Falcone, who
will discover dangerous relations between the Mafia, Politics, Nar and neo-fascists, the Magliana gang, Gladio and
Secret Services. The film reconstructs the political climate that preceded the murder: protected in Rome by the
Secretary of the DC and the President of the Republic Pertini, Mattarella is totally opposed
by the Sicilian leaders of his party. Mattarella not only disturbed the equilibrium in being in
DC but entered with a straight leg on the affairs and agreements between politics and the mafia, which, for the murder
Mattarella, allies itself with the Roman far right neo-fascist in exchange for the escape from prison
Ucciardone of the leader Concutelli. But the Mattarella murder is also the story of a family, of
human beings, of values ​​and ideals pursued with a sincere spirit of service and supportive inspiration: aspects that
play a central role in the film.
