This is the true story of the women who took on the world’s most powerful mafia ’Ndrangheta. Founded more than 150 years ago in the toe of Italy, the ’Ndrangheta is today one of the most powerful organised crime groups, with a crushing presence in southern Italy, a major force in global finance and a reach into more than 50 countries around the world, yet few of us have ever heard of them. The ’Ndrangheta’s power rests on a code of silence.
Alessandra Cerreti, an anti–mafia prosecutor, realised the key to bringing down this criminal empire was to free its women and allow them to speak out and testify. The stakes are huge, the women are fighting for their lives, the Mafiosi are fighting for their existence and Alessandra Cerreti is fighting to save a nation.
