The movie is centered around when Alex finds out that his mother is ill and only has a few months to live. After she passes away, Alex goes to her funeral and decides to run away. With everything he has been through he is forced to steal to survive. However unbeknownst to Alex, his mother knew a man named Frank Mariani and had an agreement with him that she would see Frank once or twice a week and make love to him to put food on the table, make ends meet and take care of both Frank and her son. Alex does not get to know Frank at all because his mother never introduced him for fear that her son would not agree to the life she was living. As fate would have it though, Frank Mariani discovers Alex as he is stealing something while driving to his grocery store. Seeing that there is potential in him and that he’s good at what he does, Frank decides to get to know Alex, bringing him into his circle of trust. Ultimately, Frank figures out that he will have use for him after he teaches Alex to become one of the best assassins to work for him.
Although, Frank will be surprised at how loyal and disciplined Alex becomes while being very profitable in collecting unpaid debt from other people that owe money to him. Not long after, Frank convinces Alex that he is his blood relative. Being the corrupt gangster he’s known to be, Frank has many business relations and financial agreements with other gangsters but one in particular with Christian Catilano. Soon things go terribly wrong with it when Alex falls in love with Castilano’s daughter. Alex will have to make a tough decision between the two men when Frank wants Alex to kill Castilano and end their business relation. After he learns that Frank no longer needs him because he’s reached the top to overthrow and control others, Alex finds out that Frank is not related to him and turns on him while protecting the woman he loves and her father. Frank pulls out all the stops to kill Alex and recruits some of his best assassins to go after him, until Alex is dead in a pool of his own blood.
