Anders Berthelsen, Denmark, 2011

21 min.DK/Short fictionAnimation

A Sicilian gangster family is facing a world of international competition and globalization. With questionable sense of priorities, the decision is made to put all of their resources into a far more important matter: Settling an old score with someone who has evaded them for thirty years... A certain Giuseppe Baldini has been spotted in Venice. Why is this man so important? What has he done to upset the old Don? And how good is the family's very best hit man at the end of the day?
Only one thing is certain: Giuseppe Baldini must die.
