The true story of the man that brought down the Mafia - Tommaso Buscetta the so called "boss of the two worlds", first mafia informant in Sicily 1980's.

"One of the most revealing portraits of the Cosa Nostra on film" - The Hollywood Reporter

In the early 1980’s, an all out war rages between Sicilian mafia bosses. Tommaso Buscetta, a made man, flees to hide out in Brazil. Back home in Italy, scores are being settled, and Buscetta’s allies are killed off one after another. Arrested and then extradited by the Brazilian police, Buscetta makes a decision that will change the entire story of the Mafia: He decides to meet with Judge Falcone and betray the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.

THE TRAITOR is Italy's submission to the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards for Best International Feature Film.
