In 1980’s Rome, the only thing more dangerous than the criminals, is the state.

Two years after being dismissed by the Italian State Police for the killing of an unarmed robber, private investigator, De Rossi, is hired to look into the violent death of a young socialite. In search of the truth, De Rossi becomes entangled in a web of deceit, corruption and murder and soon realises that it is not just the criminals he needs to worry about.

If De Rossi is to survive, he would have to go against the very law that he once held sacrosanct.

Where would you turn to when the state is complicit?
