The Boss Hunt is inspired by real-life events and by the incredible sting operations, in 2010 and 2011, carried out by an organized anti-mafia unit in Naples, which brought to the capture of the bosses of the Neapolitan Mafia Antonio Iovine and Michele Zagaria, who have been hiding out respectively for 14 and 16 years in the outskirts of Naples.
The investigation activities, which were carried out by few men and even fewer resources, are described by the character of the police commissioner, Michele Romano (character based on Vittorio Pisani, the policeman in charge of actually capturing the bosses).
This surprising and spectacular operations, result of the individual courage of a handful of men, is the heart of the events told, woven with their personal experiences.
Agents Arturo, Salvo, Rosanna, Carlo, Francesco and Laura are committed to the investigative mission that everyone considered impossible. But they are willing to pay a very high price to succeed putting at stake both their own lives and those of their loved ones.
