It’s the beginning of the Risorgimento, or revolution for Sicilian independence. Connor Doherty “chooses” to join the great general Giuseppe Garibaldi in the war. Less than a year later, he ends up in a small town in Sicily and becomes involved in the very genesis of the Mafia, falls in love, and builds a home.
