Nicholas Santini is a young man trying to earn his "button" as a full fledged member of the governing counsel of a New Jersey-base Cosa Nostra chapter, better know as, The Mob. Trying to impress his notorious elders, including his influential Uncle Danny , he schemes up a spectacular robbery that can make millions. As he is no longer content to plunder tractor trailers on New Jersey highways, Nick conspires with a computer genius from the old neighbourhood in Brooklyn to plan a modified computer chip on a communications satellite that will allow him to siphon off a spare change from several million bank accounts. But his internet bank scam leads to a fateful meeting when Nick is forced to choose between loyalty to his friends and a promotion in the organisation. Or, a death verdict for one of their own.
