The basic premise of the film is that there is a boy named Calogero, or "C" as they call him in the film, who gets to know a crime boss in the Bronx, known as Sonny. His father Lorenzo doesn't want him to hang out with him, calling him trouble. Through the film as C gets older he learns life lessons from Sonny, such as that people don't pay attention to your body when you're laid out at your funeral, and how to pick up a woman to know that she is 'the one'.
At the end of the film, C's friends invite him to blow up a black store. When theyytried to blow up an African-American store in a black neighborhood, and their car accidentally blows up and they all die. He is grateful for not going, so he goes to thank Sonny, and he is assassinated in front of him.
This film is great, and you can learn some excellent life lessons about relationships, peoples roles in society, and many other topics. It also speaks to me because it is a tale about Italian life, and my family is very deeply Italian. I love my heritage, and the film does highlight a lot of things that go on in my Italian life.
