The early 1990s was an explosive period in Italian political history, notably for the "Clean Hands" (Mani Pulite) investigation that led to the collapse of The First Republic - Italy's first post war government. At the heart of the story are six individuals caught in the eye of the storm, which began with the arrest of the left-wing politician Mario Chiesa. As Italy struggled to put an end to large-scale political corruption, thousands of individuals from the police, mafia, public service and politics came under the microscope - some even committed suicide.
