Brooklyn, NY, two opposing sides. Out with the old regime, in with the new. It's Requiem for a Dream meets Goodfellas. Angie Donatello is the brash new leader of a small-time group of guys who've been doing minor crime jobs in their neighborhood since they were kids - from stealing the basket of donations from the church to modern time when they are stealing truckloads of Louis Remy Cognac. He is a fierce man but he has a good heart. Gianluca Moretti is the Godfather. Old school mafia king pin whose family has been in charge of the Neighborhood for 4 generations. He's playing a big game in a bad way. He is pushing pure Sicilian Heroin and begs Angie Donatello to join his ranks. Angie denies the Godfather as he wants no part of that poison. He's happy to stay small time in a small pond - keeping his hands clean from the drug trade and remaining true to himself and his upbringing. Everything is well in Angie's world until one of his men who is like a brother to him, gets wrapped up in the Don's heroin. Nothing good can come of this. And the weight of the world rests heavily on Angie's shoulders as he tries to clean up the mess and take over the neighborhood and making things right once and for all.
