Pardi di domani: Concorso nazionale
’A iucata (The Bet)
Several racing stables are maintained in the working-class districts of Catania, Sicily, far from the prying eyes of the authorities. One of them belongs to Concetto, known as the chemist, a character both respected and feared, and is well known in the world of clandestine horse racing. Every day, just before dawn, his son Vittorio goes to the stables to prepare their horse Vito Portanova for training.
