Filumena recounts the tragic tale of Florence Lassandro (Filumena)
a young immigrant woman who was forced into a loveless marriage,
drawn into a bootlegging scheme by Emilio Picariello, implicated in the
murder of a police constable, and sent to the gallows at the age of 22,
immediately after Picariello.
To this day no one is sure who fired the fatal shot.
