Targeted by many enemies, Vincenzo is victim of an attack and he's hospitalized. Anthony is in charge of the revenge and kills the two assassins. His girlfriend Diane refuses this kind of life and leaves him. Shortly after Vincenzo dies and at his father's funeral Anthony arrives on a wheelchair, horribly disfigured. He manages to regain control of his family's business, banishing his brother and meeting again Diane, who has become the President of the United States. They marry but Anthony restores his role as killer.
