      After the cancer induced death of eight old year Marianna her mother joins the fight of the other mothers against the mafia who leave their families to their own. Nevertheless, the number of people demonstrating continues to constantly grow. Eventually they are lead by a priest. As the situation becomes more and more critical only a miracle can help. God decides to make his way to Naples – himself.
