Based on Robert Saviano's bestselling book, this gritty Italian crime drama paints a portrait of the brutal Neapolitan crime organisation the Camorra, as seen through the eyes of Ciro Di Marzo, the obedient and self-confident right-hand man of the clan's godfather, Pietro Savastano.
The series begins as Ciro and his friend Attilio set fire to the home of ruthless rival Salvatore Conte as they attempt to stop him from encroaching on Savastano's turf. When Conte escapes, however, he makes a vicious retaliation against the Savastanos, meaning all-out war for Pietro.
As the death toll mounts, Ciro suffers a tragedy during the bloody battle. Pietro may be satisfied when he gains upper hand, but Ciro yearns for revenge against Conte.
Gomorrah starts on Sky Atlantic on Monday August 4th at 9pm.
