Plot – Henry Hill was born to an Irish father and a Sicilian mother. He's just a teenager when he joins the "little mafia" of the slums of New York. There, a powerful Irish man called James Conway protects him and introduces him to a gang specialized in thefts, extortions and contraband that soon becomes his real family. He obeys without discussing his bosses James Conway, Tommy DeVito and Paul Cicero, who soon show to be able to kill ferociously. In particular Tommy, apparently so good-natured, often transforms into a bloodthirsty maniac, ready to kill not only enemies, but also an unlucky waiter who irritated him.
