Synopsis

Tommaso Buscetta was the first high-ranking Italian Mafia boss ever to turn against Cosa Nostra. Buscetta not only broke the code of silence for the first time - he testified against the Mob, both in the USA and in Italy. “He was the key witness who broke the back of the Mob”, said Louis Freeh (future FBI Director) at the time.
Buscetta helped convict more than 400 Mafiosi. He became the Mob’s most wanted man in the world – and 11 close relatives, including two sons, were killed.
A story told for the first time with exclusive access to Buscetta's family, who remain in America and are only now breaking their silence after more than 30 years in hiding.
