Boxing champion Jake LaMota stars as the all powerful underworld boss Don Ricci in this fast moving gangster movie. The thrills and spills centre around Don Ricci teaming up with the similarly powerful Todd Barrett (Johnny Stumper) although Todd doesn't make his money from the streets but from the media being the man behind the rich and famous of New York. But can these two self obsessed giants really work together or is their greed and desire to be top dog going to sound the death knell for someone? The New York streets could soon be running with blood particularly when so many influential people. Who have their image and fortunes to protect, are involved!
