Marco Lo Bianco is a juvenile court judge. He works in Reggio Calabria and dreams of snatching the boys from the 'ndrangheta. Seeing in his courtroom all the children of the most important mafia families in the province, he realized that the 'ndrangheta is a legacy. Families have power on the territory thanks to the generational legacy, forcing the children to take on their father’s jobs. When the judge discovers that young Domenico, brother to another young criminal, has been arrested, he decides that it is time to say enough.
