After the arrests of the Mafia godfathers during the early 2000s, Italy hoped that it had finally put an end to organized crime. Instead, some of the notorious mafia old guard have been replaced by a young generation of mobsters, known as the ‘Baby Mafia’.
Led by reckless adolescents known as the ‘Baby Bosses’, the majority of these gangs can be found in Naples, home to hundreds of Camorra clans. Drug trafficking, thefts, extortion and racketeering run rife throughout the city. Yet unlike the generations of mafia that went before them, these youngsters do not respect the old rules. The slightest provocation can lead to carnage.
We meet these young Mafia leaders and go on patrol with the famous Falchi police unit, tasked with stopping them.
