  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A young man, Aldo Formazzoni, has been given the task, from an early age to avenge his family feud of 100 years. The feud began in Old Naples, with the murder of a young boy who was beginning to move in gangster circles.
 
Aldo's great Uncle was on the run from the police, after partaking in a jewellery theft, and was gunned down in cold blood after surrendering. And The Vendetta has begun.
 
After various attemps by the Formazzoni family to even the balance, it comes down to Aldo to perform this act of honour.
 
As well as having to kill someone from this family his Uncle asks him to join in the 'family business'.  Aldo declines and so a bloody story begins.
 
While on the run from his Uncle, Aldo must still hunt for the Innocent descendant, Johnny Trieste, of the policeman. Circumstances dictate that Aldo hijacks a young woman, Megan Reed, and a strange dynamic begins in the car and on the move.
 
The film moves on various time-lines; from Aldo's childhood, to the action of The Vendetta and its question of honour, and the possible romance that builds within this intense period of time.
