Catania, Sicily. In the heart of the working class neighbourhood lies a vast and lawless territory where makeshift stables can be found. One of them is owned by Concetto - aka “il farmacista” - a man respected and even feared by many, who built a reputation for himself in the small world of clandestine horse racing. Every day, before sunrise, his son Vittorio goes to the stables to get their horse, Vito Portanova, ready for training. In a few days, a clandestine race will take place on an empty street at the foot of the Etna.
