Palermo in the 1950s: Vittoria Nicastro is supposed to get the unsuccessful communist daily newspaper L'Ora back on track as the new editor-in-chief. He and his journalists uncover a series of dubious crimes and link them to the Sicilian mafia, the "Cosa Nostra". The editors penetrate even the darkest corners of society and the Church. A highly dangerous undertaking that repeatedly puts her life in danger. Finally, in 1958, it was the L'Ora newspaper editors who used the word "mafia" in a headline for the first time to take journalistic action against the widespread, widely organized crime in the region. Cosa Nostra's reaction was not long in coming.

When the mercenary Samantha and her team rescue the kidnapped daughter of a governor from the clutches of African terrorists, everything initially looks like a routine job for the experienced professionals. But the head of the kidnappers Zalaam and his men immediately follow their heels and a dramatic chase begins, which leads Samantha's mercenary troops to an abandoned farm. The team soon realizes that the site was previously used by poachers to raise lions that were sold to trophy hunters and animal dealers - and that not all lions have left the farm. On the run from the terrorists and the most dangerous predator in Africa, the soldiers understand how quickly humans can reach the end of the food chain when hunters become the hunted.
