Fact based story about the political battle that was waged against the Mafia in
Sicily during the late 1980's and early 1990's. Chazz Palminteri plays Giovanni
Falcone, a crusading prosecutor who tried to use money trails as a way to attack
the mobsters. He is aided by a former mobster (F. Murray Abraham) who volunteers
to turn state's evidence after his sons are killed by a renegade mob chief. With
the mobster's help, the prosecutor was able to obtain over 300 convictions.
