Rome, late ’70s. Rough years. Lebanese, the ambitious leader of a small but fierce pack, has risen through the ranks with one firm belief: if everybody is in charge, nobody is in charge. Rome is out there, waiting for someone with guts and strength to take over. But courage and ideas are not enough. It takes money, men, and weapons. Beside him, his trustworthy friend Dandi. The crucial encounter is, though, with Ice, and his pack. With their alliance, The Gang is founded and takes off. The other Roman gangs bow down to the newcomers. All of them, but Terrible. Among the many gang leaders of the city, he’s the most reluctant to accept the growing power of his arch – enemy, Lebanese.
Everybody wants to do business with the Gang. Small – time and big – time criminals, politicians, the neofascist gang led by The Black. But also the secret service. There is also another part of the State that has been keeping track of the gang since their very early days: the young, ambitious, idealist police inspector Nicola Scialoja, quite unpopular among his colleagues due to his “leftie” ideas. Successes alternate with defeats, while his public challenge turns into a private issue: Scialoja and Dandi are also fighting over the beautiful and troubled Patrizia, the sexiest prostitute in Rome.
