Plot: 1985. Giancarlo Siani, a reporter for Il Mattino, is killed with ten pistol shots. An easygoing 26 year-old, he loves his life and his work: he gathers information and checks it. We see the last four months of his life. Every day he goes from his home in the Vomero neighbourhood to the hell of Torre Annunziata, kingdom of crime boss Valentino Gionta. Giancarlo is investigating corruption in earthquake reconstruction efforts. Amidst the mafiosi, corrupt politicians, frightened prosecutors and helpless policemen, he is like a lily inthe mud. The night of his murder, he is supposed to go with his girlfriend to a concert by rock star Vasco Rossi…
