DESCRIPTION

Roberto Saviano thoroughly portrays the mafia in his bestselling books, even risking his own life. The film is an adaptation of one of the titles of the Italian pen master. Piranhas are the youth gangs that roam the streets of Naples on scooters. Fifteen-year-olds, as good at using AK-47 as PlayStation, with no future, no fears or scruples. Initially employed by Camorra as a youth mob outpost, but meticulously exploiting favorable circumstances and opposing the godfathers in Naples.
