The film charts the course of organised crime in post-world war two America through the eyes of veteran turned hustling hitman Frank Sheeran (De Niro).

Adapted from a novel by Charles Brandt the film is a long gestating passion project for the director and some of his most famous muses. With many fans hoping for a return to greatness, particular for the twin acting titans of De Niro and Pacino.
