The Squadron - Calabrian Mafia Hunters

4 x 52' (ITA, ENG subs)
The Squadron of Calabrian Hunters, was created in 1991 to stop the multiple actions of what has become the fiercest Mafia in the world: the ‘Ndrangheta.

They are fighting a daily war in a difficult region, were everyone knows each other, but “nobody has seen or heard anything”. The Calabrian Hunters are a unique force to fight the ‘Ndrangheta from it’s roots. Super trained men, able to survive in unfriendly environments and with a respectable record: 8.000 arrests, 275 fugitives captured, 400 bunkers discovered. We follow them in their daily fight for justice.

We follow them in a long strenuous, continuous daily fight: the discovery and destruction of illegal marijuana plantations, the patient search and attack to capture some of it’s members. But most of all we gradually learn directly from the fighters, the techniques used to fight mobsters, like wild animals in their burrows, who are hiding all their lives, in unpretentious hidden places. The total opposite of what we saw in Hollywood movies. Apart from some action scenes and and patient search in hidden paths, we are left with the humanity of some humble hunters and the monstrous idea of the illegal work of their prey.
