In 1950 Kansas City, two criminal syndicates fighting for a piece of the American dream have struck an uneasy peace. Together, they control an alternate economy of exploitation, graft, and drugs. To cement their truce, Loy Cannon (Rock), the head of the African American crime family, trades his youngest son Satchel (Jones), to his enemy Donatello Fadda (Ragno), the head of the Italian mafia. In return, Donatello surrenders his youngest son Zero (Braccioforte) to Loy. When Donatello dies in the hospital following routine surgery, the tenuous truce is threatened.
