At 37 Letizia, together with her 3 daughters, left a husband whom she had been married to since the age of 16 and became a journalist. She picked up a camera when she found that she could better sell her articles if they were accompanied by photographs. After years of racing on her vespa to the crime scenes with her camera, Letizia found she had accumulated an archive of death and decay of Palermo and its citizens. But simply documenting what was happening wasn't enough for her and so she became an anti-Mafia activist and environmental politician and dedicated her life to the battle for justice. Battaglia paints a uniquely intimate portrait of this warrior of a woman. A story of passion, pain and the struggle for freedom.
