This movie follows the tale of the Corleone Family. They are just your normal run of the mill American family. You know, if you subtract all the mob activity. The family is met with respect from all in the beginning but this changes quickly. Another family brings up the opportunity to start a drug trade in the city. When Don Corleone decides not to support the new "business" the other family put out a hit on him. This causes the worst war between the families in years. Will the Corleone Family come out on top or will the empire they've build crumble?
