our first movie

MALAMURI

The story is set in Sicily in the 1950s, where a young girl named Carmela, our protagonist, works in her mother's tailor shop. Despite herself, Carmela will find the body of a magistrate murdered by the mafia, and this will catapult her into the center of a series of events that will lead her to meet Fausto, a Corriere della Sera journalist who arrived from Rome to investigate the murder.

The young man will bring a breath of freedom in the mental and cultural closure of the small village, which will strike the protagonist, who will find the courage to rebel against the master father and seek her way following her true passion.
