The documentary-style Italian drama chronicles the rise and fall of Salvatore Giuliano, a real-life Mob chieftain who rose to prominence in post-WWII Sicily. The main character is almost unseen and his career is recalled in flashbacks after his assassination in 1950. With the help of his right-hand man and cousin Gaspare Pisciotta (Frank Wolff), Salvatore becomes a guerilla leader whose resistance to the corrupt politicians dominating his post-war nation leads to his popularity among the Sicilian peasant class.
