Set in the midst of the prohibition in 1930s Illinois, this thriller sees Angelo Lagusa, a man whose family was taken from him by the Vanetti crime family, enact a plot for revenge against them from the inside out. Quickly climbing their inner ranks as a provider of resources and muscle, he gains the trust of the prospective next head, Nero, and does whatever is necessary to see them crumble, whether that means taking on an insane hitman or pushing away the few people who have stuck by him in life.
