Senza Nessuna Pietà

Mimmo is a mob enforcer, the guy the boss sends out on dirty jobs when the money needs to be collected. He’s a loyal soldier who keeps his head down, something that’s getting increasingly difficult to do with the boss’s son, Manuel, a serial womanizer, growing too big for his boots. When things turn ugly during Manuel’s “date” with an escort Mimmo was sent to pick up, Mimmo snaps. His attempt to escape retribution, all the while protecting a woman he doesn’t even know, provides the emotional landscape for Alhaique’s compassionate portrait of people working and living on the fringes of society.
