Synopsis

Drama based on the novel by Gianrico Carofiglio, who also co-wrote the screenplay. Friends Giorgio (Elio Germano) and Francesco (Michele Riondino) start playing poker to make some money, but when they realise how much more cash they could accrue if they fix the games, their lives are changed forever. The two men quickly become involved in the criminal world, not just taking people's money, but also dealing drugs and killing others. While this results in Giorgio growing apart from his family, an even more dangerous side to Francesco's personality becomes apparent.
