A Monte Vista Story


When Vittoria Nespola shows up on the doorstep of the Mancini brothers, the older brother, Carlo, is weary of taking her in. After his father’s death, he’s turned to a life of crime, and he’s already worried about involving his younger brother, Camillo, in gang wars and art theft. But Vittoria isn’t scared away, and little by little, he realises that she has secrets of her own – secrets that might very well impact his own living.
