'Piranhas' is set in the narrow, sloping streets of Naples, a city pockmarked with criminal Mafia activity. In this environment, a group of teenage boys race through the streets on scooters. Nicola, the group's 'leader', wants to climb high up the criminal ladder. Soon, he and his friends are demanding money from locals, dealing drugs and pulling the triggers on illegal firearms.
