Peppino Impastato is a quick-witted lad growing up in a Sicilian village in the late 1960s. He lives in a family with Mafia connections, one hundred steps away from the house of Tano Badalamenti, the Mafia boss who lords it over Cinisi.
In those days, just like other young people in many countries he also gets ready to rebel against authority, but with a difference: in Sicily this means defying the very status of the Mafia.
Together with a group of young people that cherish the same ideals, Peppino sets up a newspaper and a radio denouncing corruption and illegal speculation, ridiculing the taboos of silence and the local untouchables. His commitment to the cause goes as far as deciding to stand for local elections in a small left-wing party. This will be his sentence to death.
