Synopsis

In Rome, at dawn, when everyone is asleep, there's one man who isn't sleeping. That man is called Giulio Andreotti.

Calm, ambiguous, inscrutable, Andreotti is a synonym of power in Italy for over four decades. At the beginning of the nineties, without arrogance or humility, immobile, ambiguous and reassuring, he advances relentlessly towards his seventh mandate as Prime Minister.

Nearing 70, Andreotti is a gerontocrat who, like God, fears nobody and doesn't know what fear is. Everything—election battles, terrorist massacres, infamous accusations—slide over him through the years without leaving trace. He remains passive and the same as ever before everything. Until the strongest counter power in the country, the Mafia, decides to declare war against him.
