In 1978, American law enforcement is at war with the American mob. But for the first time, the FBI has a real chance to strike back. Their secret weapon, agent Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco, has infiltrated the Bonanno family and become close with known killers Lefty “Guns” Ruggiero and “Sonny Black” Napolitano. But Pistone's life – and the very mob itself – will change forever when he is ordered to kill so he can receive the honor of becoming a “made man.”
