As Sandra Paoli’s murdered uncle lies dying in her arms, the young criminal lawyer feels something for the first time: the craving to kill. Appointed by her uncle as successor, she agrees to head up the Corsican Mafia. The position transforms her from a conventional mob lawyer into a fearless matriarch ready to consolidate power and wreak vengeance. The Paoli blood running through her veins guides her as she seduces, surprises, calculates, kills and manipulates. Her new life is one of isolation and loneliness, which she comes to accept as the price of maintaining control and continuing her uncle’s legacy. Filmed in the south of France and on the island of Corsica, Mafiosa stuns with the beauty of its setting and the brutality of its story. Similar in theme to 'Breaking Bad' and 'The Sopranos', this acclaimed series depicts an ordinary person’s wide-eyed descent into criminality.
