Based on author Rick Porrello's book To Kill the Irishman: The War that Crippled the Mafia, director Jonathan Hensleigh's richly detailed biopic details the rise and fall of notorious Cleveland union rep Danny Greene Ray Stevenson, who earned notoriety in the mid-'70s for his bold willingness to defy the Italian mob.

Before long, the scrappy local has become a mafia enforcer, but after forming an alliance with notorious gangster John Nardi Vincent D'Onofrio and burning feared loan shark Shondor Birns Christopher Walken, Greene starts to discover that he has the potential to become as powerful as any of his adversaries.
