Stabat Mater is the story of a young kid who dreams of a normal life, but becomes a young gangster instead. It’s a hard story, essential, dramatic, yet rich in humorous, ironic and sweet moments.
As in ‘My Brilliant Friend’ (recently, one of the most talked about series at the majority of international markets), it dives into the intricate relationships of its characters.
As ‘Gomorrah’ (160 countries, 1 million viewers per episode in Italy), it is a realistic, gritty drama involving the criminal universe in the South of Italy. A mob war that will force our main character into rushed actions and decisions.
Stabat Mater takes place in the beautiful, sneaky and chaotic neighborhood of Bari Vecchia, “old Bari”, but it is a totally universal tale.
