Storyline

Set in the early 1900s, Joe Petrosino, a NYPD cop, goes after a ruthless gang (with the calling card black hand) that migrated from Italy to America. The thugs kidnap people and then extort money from their families. They are loathed by law-abiding Italian families who are frightened, but nevertheless help Petrosino behind the scenes. He arrests and deports as many of these criminals as he can, for the sake of his own heritage.
