As Palermo is ravaged by cholera, Giulia escapes to the new villa at the tuna processing plant with her daughters and mother-in-law. Meanwhile, Vincenzo risks catching the disease to take care of business. The epidemic hurts his finances but also gives him the idea to create an independent fleet in the Mediterranean. He can't do it alone, however. He needs the backing of Palermo's aristocracy, and dinner at Palazzo Florio gives Vincenzo and Giulia the chance to obtain support.
Follow brothers Paolo and Ignazio, two small spice merchants who have escaped from a Calabria stuck in the past and in search of social redemption. In Sicily they invent a future, turning a small, run-down shop into a flourish business activity that young Vincenzo, with his revolutionary ideas, will transform into an economic empire.
