The idyllic peace in which the two lived with their parents (Angelina Jolie and David Oyelowo) is suddenly turned upside down when their older brother, David, is the victim of an accident. Since then, the joy that permeated the country house has completely vanished. Determined to save their broken parents from the loss of their eldest son, Alice and Peter set off on an adventurous journey to London where they hope to sell some family heirlooms to raise some money. They still don’t know, however, that this journey will change their lives forever.

In the future, humans live on a planet very similar to Earth. They have just won a tough war against aliens but their existence is threatened by an unknown infection that has decimated the female gender and is wreaking havoc: now everyone can hear each other’s thoughts and privacy is just a distant memory. An evil and corrupt man tries to exploit this delicate situation to his advantage and only Todd Hewitt (Tom Holland) can stop him. Meanwhile, as chaos rages, Todd will be fascinated by a being he has never seen: Viola (Daisy Ridley), a woman.

Fernando – the son of Ugo Piazza – is a brilliant criminal lawyer raised by his mother Nelly with the intention of making him a different man from his father. But if 100 million euros disappear in Milan with an online scam and the main suspect is a client of the lawyer Fernando Piazza, that surname cannot but have a weight and lead to a natural connection. Especially if the scammed company is just a cover that hides one of the most powerful criminal organizations on the planet, the ‘Ndrangheta. Milan, Calabria, Frankfurt, Moscow and Antwerp are just some of the squares on which Fernando is forced to play the game for his life, an all-out challenge, as demanding as the enemy he faces.
