THE RISE AND FALL OF A ‘CASINO’ MOBSTER: Tony Spilotro was the Mob’s man in Las Vegas. A feared enforcer, the bosses knew Tony would do whatever it took to protect their interests. The “Little Guy” built a criminal empire that was the envy of mobsters across the country.

SHOTS IN THE DARK: In 1963, Rocco Balliro and a pair of associates stormed an apartment in Boston and were immediately caught in a shootout with several unseen assailants. The men who returned fire were Boston police officers, waiting in ambush for him. It was a rescue mission that went downhill in a hurry. Leaving his beloved girlfriend and her toddler son dead.
THE GANGSTER’S COUSIN: Young Sal navigates the streets of Harlem, defying the ways of people in power-including the bullies in his neighborhood and his own mafia family culture. He experiences the inherent corruption of the US justice system and discovers the truth about the secret world of outlaw figures like his cousin and namesake, Charles “Lucky” Luciano.
