Piranhas

Six boys race on their scooters through the narrow streets of their Sanità neighbourhood in Naples. Nicola & Co. are fearless daredevils, desperate to make money like their role models. They use the city’s rooftops for assault rifle practice, deal drugs and do not hesitate to use their weapons to take control of the neighbourhood. Nicola, knows the rules: in order to get his gang into the game and quickly to the top, he challenges one of the old bosses. But whoever is in charge today may well be dead tomorrow. When his girlfriend causes Nicola to be caught between all fronts, he is forced to make a decision.

Camorra expert Roberto Saviano (Gomorrha, 2006) wrote the screenplay for his adaptation with Maurizio Braucci and Claudio Giovannesi. The film provides a shocking portrait of a younger generation in a state of permanent war.
