In 1984, after becoming part of an antimafia group seeking to prosecute the Sicilian mafia, the Cosa Nostra, Giovanni Falcone and his colleague Paolo Borsellino find themselves amidst a stunning turn in the case. Tommaso Buscetta, a high-ranking gangster, turns himself in and decides to cooperate with authorities to bring down the Cosa Nostra. Thanks to Buscetta's testimony, the Palermo tribunal successfully brings down several top-ranking members of the Sicilian mafia. Despite the danger that his work inevitably brought upon him, it didn't stop Falcone from continuing his work in both Italy and the United States, virtually eliminating Sicily as a major heroin-trafficking point. In 1992 he was assassinated by members of the group he fought against his entire life.

Tras su integración en la fuerza antimafia, junto con su colega Paolo Borsellino, se produce en 1984 un vuelco en las investigaciones sobre la mafia siciliana: Tommaso Buscetta, "el rey de los dos mundos," se entrega a la justicia para colaborar en el desmantelamiento de la Cosa Nostra. Gracias a sus declaraciones y a las de otros, el tribunal de Palermo culmina con éxito el llamado "macrojucio" contra la cúpula de la mafia siciliana. A pesar del peligro que este éxito le trajo, no impide que en esos años y en los sucesivos trabaje de manera fructífera, tanto en Italia como en Los Estados Unidos, para desbaratar el tráfico de heroína en manos de familias sicilianas. En 1992 es asesinado por el mismo grupo al que luchó durante toda su carrera.
