"Calogero is in the witness protection program after having witnessed a mafia murder in Sicily. With a new identity, he is sent to Sauris. However, he soon finds out the killer he had reported started a new life there too." - (IMDB)

"Calogero is a Sicilian ordinary man who has made an extraordinary choice. He's a slushie street vendor and one day he witnessed a mafia murder and decided to do something that nobody would have the braveness to do: testify. And this is how Calogero is "packaged" and sent, under the witness protection program, to the farest place from Sicily: in a little village in the Alps mountains. A village of hospitable people, but which he struggles to understand." - (Rotten Tomatoes)
