Rome 1970s.
From a quiet and bourgeois neighborhood, in a seemingly quiet and respectable school, young men emerge who are anything but calm.Among the former students of the San Leone Magno school we will find those responsible for the infamous crime of Circeo (*). The events that took place there shocked Italy to its core, primarily because the perpetrators of this heinous and brutal crime all belonged to the revered upper class of respectable Roman families.
Friendship, money, revenge, and violence: the criminal side to seemingly good respectable boys.
(*) The Circeo massacre is a true crime story and refers to the kidnapping and torture inflicted by three young far-right men to two girls aged 17 and 19 years, one of whom was killed by her captors. The other miraculously saved herself by pretending to be dead.
