Gangsta synopsis

In the criminal city of Ergastulum, there is a group of super-powered and speedy people nicknamed "Twilights". These twilights define the city with its constant tension with ordinary people, and the powerful factions of the city (the Corsica family, the Monroe family, the Cristiano family and the Paulklee guild) use them as a means of maintaining the fragile balance within the city.

Enter the charming Worick Arcangelo and the deaf twilight Nicolas Brown, two old friends and business partners of the neutral group “The Handymen”. As a contractor, they are ready to take on almost any job that is required of them to make ends meet. One day they get a seemingly regular job from the police: killing a rival pimp and his prostitute. This work, however, is not all it appears to be as it leads the couple down a dangerous path and sets off events that could change the framework of Ergastulum forever.
