What is The Good Mothers about, plot of the tv series
At the center of the TV series is a young and brilliant prosecutor, Anna Colace, who has the intuition to attack the ‘Ndrangheta by relying on its women, the wives and mothers of the bosses. Figures that have always been marginalized with oppression and violence by the extremely patriarchal system of the criminal organization. The story begins with the famous disappearance of Lea Garofalo, who had testified against her husband Carlo Cosco to escape her grip and ensure her daughter Denise of her a life away from that environment. The story expands, through the investigations of the prosecutor Anna Colace, to the powerful stories of Giuseppina Pesce and Concetta Cacciola. Two very different women but linked by a dramatic past, by a life lived in an oppressive and suffocating context and by the desire to guarantee themselves and their children a better future, as Lea had tried to do.
