Don Pietro is the head of the Savastano clan, one of the most powerful Neapolitan crime families, and embodies the role of the old-school godfather. His power is based on force, and violence is his means of silencing all challengers. At his side is Ciro Di Marzio, the obedient and self-assured right-hand man. Ciro’s faith in the ‘family’ is shaken when he realizes what ends Don Pietro will go to. When Don Pietro is sidelined by a long jail sentence, Ciro’s code of honor forces him to guide and protect Pietro’s son Genny, the heir to the Savastano empire, grooming him to take his father’s place until he is free to command once more. While attempting to carve out his own foothold of power within the clan, Ciro must contend with Genny’s impulsiveness, the iron will of Don Pietro’s wife, the family’s growing unrest without their godfather and rival organizations bent on claiming Savastano territory.
