Producer: Simone Catania
With: Carlo Messina, Gianpaolo Messina


After selling cigarettes from the “grey” market online – and becoming considerably wealthy – the Messina brothers are being pursued by multinationals from the tobacco industry. Far from being intimidated by their threats, they are building a factory in Italy to produce their own brand. A gangster film whose reckless characters are not without humour.
