Based on: Real events; the book 'To Kill the Irishman' by Rick Porrello
Story: Dramatisation of the life of Danny Greene, an Irish American gangster who gained immense criminal power in 1970s Cleveland. After a tough childhood as an orphan Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson) works hard as a longshoreman and union rep, but his mafia connections finally see him forced out of both roles. Turning fully to a criminal life he begins employment for the loan shark, Shondor (Christopher Walken). Greene, however, is too ruthless and ambitious to take orders from an unpleasant character like Shondor for long. After he, in turn, uses and betrays Shondor and Italian mafia boss John Nardi (Vincent D'Onofrio), Greene ends up as one of the main players in the 1970s turf struggles which see Cleveland dubbed 'Bomb City'. With Detective Joe Manditski (Val Kilmer) on his trail and his enemies determined to assassinate him, how long can Greene maintain his pre-eminence in the city?
