The plot of The Predators
It is early morning, the sea of Ostia is calm. A man knocks on a lady’s house: he will sell her a watch. It is always early in the morning when, a few days later, a young philosophy assistant is left out of the group chosen for the exhumation of Nietzsche’s body. Two wrongs suffered. Two apparently incompatible families: the Pavone and the Vismara. The former was bourgeois and intellectual, the latter proletarian and fascist. Opposing nuclei that share the same jungle, Rome. A trivial accident will cause those two poles to collide. And the madness of a 25-year-old boy will uncover the cards to reveal that everyone has a secret and no one is what they seem. And that we are all predators.
