Dramatic retelling of the story of Rita Atria, a 17-year-old Sicilian girl whose father and brother were both Mafia members (and victims) who breaks the vow of silence that enshrouds that world, and gives evidence to famed anti-Mafia judge Paolo Borsellino.

Rather long and uninteresting.

I was absolutely rapt in this movie. Veronica D'Agostino was mesmerizing as that unimaginably lonely young woman, and the fact that this was based on a true story made it so much more powerful for me. Very moving. FIVE STARS.

So awful it beggars belief! For once I wish I had taken rotten tomatoes.com's assessment at face value and passed this one by. There were no redeeming features to attribute to this Papa Oscar Sierra.

Rita Atria (voiceover): "No one will ever understand the void inside me. This bottomless void that has slowly deepened. I used to think that time could cure all wounds, but no, it just makes them deeper, until they slowly kill you."

Rita Atria (voiceover): "Maybe an honest word will never exist, but what's to stop us from dreaming? If each one of us tries to change, maybe then we'll succeed. -- Rita Atria."
