The Traitor tells the true story of Tommaso Buscetta, a man who brought down La Cosa Nostra, the Sicilian Mafia. Set in the early 1980s, this film offers an immersive behind-the-scenes look at mafia power structures as an all-out gang war rages between its leaders. Dodging assassinations, Buscetta flees to hide out in Brazil, but is soon arrested and extradited to Italy. Here Buscetta makes a decision that will change everything: he meets with Judge Giovanni Falcone and betrays the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra. This film is a revealing portrait of the Cosa Nostra hierarchy and how justice is served through the Mafia Maxi Trial. Introduction by Sarah Annunziato (UVA)
