They grew up on the mean streets of the big city, bad seeds of the American dream. Children of a displaced generation and products of the squalid ghetto, they vowed to rise above the crowd-at any cost. These Italian and Sicilian immigrants developed a base of power built on crime, violence and secrecy. They became America's public enemy number one.
The image of the notorious gangster has forever been emblazoned on the American mind. Popular cinema has left a lasting impression of the feared Mafiosi. Yet, this film allows you to penetrate into the mob's reality, into a world of extortion, murder and scandal. Discover the truth behind this legacy of crime in the Promised Land.
