Beloved Neapolitan actor and playwright Eduardo Scarpetta, father of Eduardo De Filippo, devoted his entire life to the theater, achieving success with timeless works such as "Miseria e nobiltà." However, everything he worked for seems lost in 1904, when he's drawn into a nasty legal battle that could compromise his freedom of expression.
