The Mafia only kills in the Summer tells the story of Arturo, a young boy growing up in Palermo – the fascinating and terrible city ruled by the Mafia- in 70s and 90s. He falls in love with his school friend Flora when they are still in primary school. In his eyes she is a princess and he makes many clumsy attempts to conquer her. This tender and amusing story spans a 20 year period whilst in the background terrible events unfold. The film narrates with subtle but never trite irony the dark years of despicable murders by the Mafia. It mocks Mafia Bosses and restores the generosity of the great heros of Antimafia.
