Angela is a beautiful, young Sicilian woman
married to a drug and jewel dealing mobster.
Unlike most mob-wives, she participates in her
husband’s business. Angela’s husband assigns
one of the ‘gang’ to be her escort, which leads
to a mutual attraction. She loves her husband
but his position forces him to constantly deny
his own true feelings – pushing Angela into a
passionate and tormented affair. She eventually
sacrifices everything for love…and is punished
for it. Angela is the story of a woman and her
life in the solitude of a world made of laws
written by men. In Italian
language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)
