|She and her older brother hope to avenge his death, but six years later her brother is eternally silenced. Despite her antipathy for the state’s legal apparatus, 17-year-old Rita (Veronica D’Agostino) hands over her extensive diaries to a famed anti-Mafia judge, Paolo Borsellino (Gérard Jugnot). Her bitter mother denounces her betrayal, and Rita is forced to hide away. While in exile, she prepares to counter the Mafia lawyers’ claims that her diaries are “the ravings of a fanatical adolescent bent on revenge.” A tragic and gripping film based on a true story.|
