Synopsis

Claudio Santamaria (Romanzo Criminale) stars in Antonio Morabito’s gripping drama about a drug salesman for an ultra-competitive pharmaceutical giant, who influences doctors and pharmacists to push their brands by offering expensive gifts in a world where profit reigns above human decency. 40-year-old sales rep, Bruno (Santamaria), suffers unbearable pressure at the hands of his tyrannical boss (Isabella Ferrari, The Great Beauty), which is proven when his broken and stressed coworker commits suicide. However, Bruno presses on, continuing to shamelessly bribe clients into sales. As things grow increasingly cutthroat, Bruno experiences another tension at home when his wife, Anna (Evita Ciri), stops taking her birth control pills against his wishes. Santamaria delivers a multi-dimensional performance, mastering the character’s edginess as pressures crank up anxiety levels to boiling point.
