Angelo Caronia is one of the best cops in Rome. His life changes radically when his Chief decides to transfer him to run a small police station on the outskirts of Palermo, from where he escaped in his teens to avoid becoming a criminal. Going back to his old haunts is tough. His first meeting with the men of his old station isn’t a good one. He immediately butts heads with his new squad, men he considers lazy, unmotivated and riddled with all the defects associated with Sicilians. The only exception is young Inspector Daniela Gemma, for whom he feels an immediate complex and tormented attraction. With the passing of time and a series of murders, the relationship between Angelo and his men improves greatly. Day after day, Angelo learns to love his birthplace, and to appreciate the character, the openness and generosity of his colleagues, who in turn are conquered by the ingenuity and sheer brilliance of their chief who, after so many years, has restored their pride in being cops. Angelo and his men, united at last, will put an end to the string of murders terrifying the city that, in the end, will turn out to be linked to the chief’s past.
