Dead Weight (Peso Morto)

Dead Weight (Peso Morto)

Angelo Massaro spent twenty-one years of his life imprisioned, unjustly, before he was found innocent of a crime he never committed.

He was the protagonist behind of one of the most glaring miscarriages of justice that has ever occurred in Italy. A human odyssey that brings back to life – emotionally and physically – the key places and people that frame the story of this man’s unjust incarceration and the shocking events surrounding it.
